EATON COUNTY - Authorities in Eaton County have found a body inside a shed southwest of Charlotte that they have had surrounded for several hours today.

The body was discovered when a robotic camera was sent into a shed near a house in the 4900 Block of Bracey Highway in Carmel Township.

It all started shortly after eight this morning when a woman called the Eaton County Sheriff's Department to report her 23-year-old ex-boyfriend had broken into her house armed with a rifle. She said the suspect left the house to set fire to a car in the driveway.

She reported hearing two gunshots outside but said she couldn't see where he went.

The caller and her four children were evacuated from the house.
Deputies and special law enforcement teams were called in and people in surrounding homes were ordered to leave.
