A 74-year-old Detroit grandmother is in custody for allegedly shooting and killing her teenage grandson.
West Bloomfield police are investigating the circumstances that led to the killing of 17-year-old Jonathan Hoffman, which took place on Friday night in a posh, gated condo complex.
The boy called 911 to report that his grandmother had shot him multiple times and he later died
All we know for sure is a domestic situation obviously got out of hand and we have a deceased subject as a result,' said Lt. Tim Diamond with the West Bloomfield Police Department.
The grandmother's attorney claimed that Hoffman was on drugs and that his client was not responsible for her actions, saying: 'She didn’t have a choice - she was afraid.'
Hoffman, a senior at Farmington Central High School had been out with friends at the movies the night before he was shot according to Freep
'He was one of the funniest kids I know,' said Adam Makhoul, 17, of Birmingham, one of the friends who saw The Dictator with Hoffman the night before he died.
'He was never violent. He always was a giving person.'
