ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Statements from two suspects in the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student say that they sneaked into Paul DeWolf's basement bedroom at his medical fraternity during a burglary attempt.
The Detroit Free Press reports that it obtained police statements from two of those jailed in the July 25 death of 25-year-old Paul DeWolf.
According to the statements, the three men broke into Phi Rho Sigma medical fraternity and entered DeWolf's basement bedroom, startling him.
The statements say DeWolf went to get something from his dresser and one suspect tried to strike him with the gun, but it fired instead.
The newspaper says Ann Arbor police Detective Katie Nucci recounted the statements at a Nov. 22 warrant hearing for 21-year-old Shaquille Jones and a second suspect.
