A 73-year-old woman was standing in the kitchen of her home in Riley Township, Michigan. Her husband reported that he heard a "loud crack and his wife collapsed to the floor." He discovered his wife had been shot.
The woman was rushed to the local hospital where she died of her injuries.
Police determined that the bullet came from a neighboring property where a 21-year-old man was target shooting. He was shooting at a berm he had built with a gun that has a range of longer than a mile and a half.
Police say the young man is cooperating with the investigation.
