HOWELL, Mich. (WLNS) — Howell Police Department is investigating a shooting that happened early Friday morning in Howell that might have been a homicide, our media partner WHMI reported Friday. Police say a suspect has been taken into custody.

Police closed off the crime scene area for a few hours for investigation. Michigan State Police and Livingston County EMS were also at the scene.
Police have not given information on the identities of the victim or the suspect.
“I’ve never felt unsafe here, I think it’s just one of those incidents. I haven’t heard anything exactly other than somebody was shot over there, what caused it. Kind of unbelievable that it happened right here in my own neighborhood,” said neighbor Beth Shopshire.
