WYOMING, Mich. — Police are investigating a shooting in Wyoming that left a 2-year-old dead.
Wyoming police responded to a shooting at a two-apartment house located in the 2400 block of Meyer Avenue SW around 6:20 p.m.
Authorities report that officers heard an adult man yelling for help that he had been shot. Police say they believe it was self-inflicted. The man is now in stable condition at a local hospital. However, officers found 2-year-old Khalise Brewer dead at the scene of the shooting.
Khalise had been hit by a bullet fired inside the home.
Authorities recovered the weapon involved in the incident and report the man is under police guard and is expected to survive. According to police, the suspect is a relative of the victim and a felon who was out on parole and should not have had a firearm.
The suspect is expected to face an arraignment hearing on Friday, Feb. 11.
At a press conference on Thursday, the Wyoming police chief called it "one of the most tragic examples of gun violence" in her career.
Police say the motive is still unclear but say they don't believe the shooting of Khalise was accidental.
According to investigators, all individuals involved in the incident have been located and there is no danger to the public.
