Off-Duty Officer Shot Multiple Times

Posted: Updated:
REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The Wayne County medical examiner's office is listing the deaths of an off-duty Detroit police officer and her husband as a murder-suicide.

Autopsy results Friday show 50-year-old Anna Hamilton-Barton suffered multiple gunshot wounds, while 47-year-old Damon Barton died of a self-inflicted gunshot to his head.

Their bodies were found about 11:40 a.m. Thursday in the house the couple shared in Redford Township, west of Detroit. Redford Township police have said they were "not actively seeking any suspects."

Family members say the couple had been having marriage problems.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig has said the officer was a 16-year veteran of the department.
