University of Michigan Student Killed By Single Gunshot

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Police in Ann Arbor say they are investigating the death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student as a homicide.

Paul DeWolf was found dead in his apartment Wednesday. A police investigation began around noon, and university police released a crime alert just before 11 p.m. In a press release, Ann Arbor Police confirm DeWolf was killed by a single gunshot wound.

During the initial investigation, police say his apartment appeared orderly and valuables seemed to be untouched.

Police say DeWolf failed to arrive for a scheduled assignment at the Veteran's Affairs Hospital. The hospital sent a colleague to the home to check on him, and that person discovered DeWolf had died.


DeWolf was a 2010 graduate of Grand Valley State University and is from Schoolcraft. He was to graduate from the medical school next spring.

Ann Arbor Police are looking for any information. If you're able to help, call the tip line at 734-794-6939, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP or email
