According to the Detroit Free Press, Paul Dewolf was sleeping when the three men walked into his room. He then lifted his head and asked what was going on. One of the intruders pointed a gun and ordered him not to move. Dewolf then got out of bed and reached for something on his dresser when one of the men with the gun tried to hit Dewolf with the gun but the gun went off striking Dewolf in the neck.
Dewolf died at the scene.
