Sgt. Mark Gajeski Shoots Wife then Himself

Police in a Detroit suburb say an off-duty officer fatally shot his wife in the parking lot of a library and then shot himself.

Sgt. Mark Gajeski (Guy-ES'-ski) of the Canton Township Public Safety Department says they both were Detroit officers who live in Canton.

Police said the woman, 33-year-old Patricia Williams, was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital Tuesday. Gajeski says the man, 36-year-old Edward Williams II, died later after being taken off life support.

Gajeski says police had responded to a disturbance at the couple's home over the weekend. He says the woman was going to the Canton police station, which is near the library, when she was shot.

The Detroit Police Department had no immediate comment.
