Police say a 25-year-old New Boston resident attacked his parents at their house near Judd and Gentz Roads in Huron Township Friday morning.
Everette Robbins, Huron director of public safety, said a 53-year-old mother died from stab wounds sustained during the attack.
The 55-year-old father was injured during the attack and was transported to a local hospital and is in stable condition, Robbins said.
Robbins said police received a call at 8:07 a.m. from a neighbor–who is an off-duty police officer–saying there was a stabbing in his front yard and that he was holding a person at gunpoint.
Police arrived quickly, Robbins said, and took the suspect into custody.
Reports state that the altercation happened inside the house and then continued outside into a neighbor’s yard.
Robbins said that the incident involved both a knife and a gun, and that shots were fired during the incident.
Michigan State Police are assisting Huron Township Police Evidence Team due to the complexity of the case, Robbins said.
Robbins said there is no current threat to the community.
The investigation is ongoing, and this article will be updated when police release more information.
