- A Pontiac woman is in custody after calling 911 saying she shot her boyfriend and that he was lying dead on her couch. 

Waterford Regional Fire Department responded to the 600 block of Lydia Lane for a subject who reportedly had been shot by his girlfriend.  

The woman told dispatch the gun was still in the house and that she would be waiting outside for deputies to arrive. Once the deputies arrived, the 34-year-old woman was taken into custody.  

The house was searched and deputies found an obviously deceased man lying on the couch. The 36-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
