Woman killed, husband in custody following Lenawee County shooting Monday

Officers responded to multiple calls of shots fired Monday night in Raisin Township. A man was arrested after allegedly shooting and killing his wife, police said.

LENAWEE COUNTY, Mich. — A woman is dead and her husband in custody and charged with open murder after what officials describe as a rare fatal shooting in Raisin Township Monday night.

Officers responded to a call of two shots fired in the 2900 block of Gady Road in Raisin Township, Michigan, located about four miles south of Tecumseh.

Nicole Allison, 27, was found dead at the scene, shot at least once. Her husband, Michael Allison, 44, was outside the home and taken into custody after being talked into putting down a shotgun, according to a press release from the Raisin Charter Township Police Department.

According to the release, the man was questioned and is now being held in jail.

A police investigation revealed a domestic dispute inside the couple's home led to the woman attempting to flee the area before her husband confronted her outside the home where she then died, the release states.

On the day of the incident, Raisin Township Police Chief Kevin Grayer described the incident as being rare for the area.

“[It’s] not very usual. We’ve had some in the past but this is the first in a long time for us,” Grayer said. "And it’s very unfortunate, holiday weekend for everybody that’s involved, not only just the kids and things like that, but the residents in the area. They know they live in a secure area in Raisin Township so it’s very unfortunate; we don’t have many homicides like that."
