      Thetford Township Police responded to the home early Friday morning.

      Thetford Township Police and the Michigan State Police Emergency Service Team discovered the bodies of 52-year-old Jean Young and her husband, 53-year-old Richard Young inside their Thetford Township home Friday morning.

      Jean Young had been shot several times.

      Richard Young was found in the garage with an apparent gunshot wound to the head.

      The house is located at 3476 E. Lake Rd., just east of Vienna Township.

      A neighbor tells NBC25 he was woken up by Thetford Township Police around 3:30 am Friday, and was told to take his family into the basement and to take cover.

      The neighbor says they were instructed to stay in the basement until told by police to come up.
