Man Fatally Shot Along Rural Road

BURR OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say a man has been found fatally shot along a rural road in southwestern Michigan and a woman is in custody after calling 911 to report the shooting.

The Sturgis Journal and WWMT-TV report the body of 35-year-old Dennis Brooks was found late Thursday in St. Joseph County's Burr Oak Township. Investigators say the woman drove to a home before reporting that she had been involved in a domestic situation and shooting.

Authorities say the woman led investigators to the shooting scene and was arrested.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports the St. Joseph County major crime task force is investigating and the shooting victim had a single gunshot wound.

The woman's name wasn't immediately released, pending formal charges. Authorities say she was expected to appear in court Friday.
