BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Investigators say a man is dead after he broke into his girlfriend's home and started assaulting her and her family. 

It happened about 1:30 a.m. Friday on the 4700 block of Bay-Gladwin County Line Road Mt. Forest Township in Bay County

Lt. Dave Kaiser with Michigan State Police said officers were sent to the home for a reported domestic disturbance between a boyfriend and his girlfriend.

When officers arrived, they learned the 43-year-old boyfriend, Jeremy Knight, kicked in the back door to the home and began assaulting his girlfriend, her mother, and the mother’s boyfriend.

The mother’s boyfriend, a 65-year-old man, fired one round from a handgun striking Knight in the chest area.

Knight died at the scene, Kaiser said.

The 65-year-old man was taken into custody and was released Friday morning pending review of possible charges by the Bay County Prosecutor.

Kaiser said the man was initially arrested because he wouldn't talk to police at the time of the incident, adding it was necessary until facts were sorted out.

Kaiser said the handgun used was registered.
