A Michigan man heard something strange early Thursday morning. He thought he was hearing an intruder breaking into his home, WXYZ in Detroit reports.

The man grabbed a gun, and when he saw the intruder, he pulled the trigger.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office says the man shot and killed his wife, a mother of two.

Deputies took the man into custody.

WXYZ says that two children, ages 2 and 4, were inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Carnae Sanders, a cousin of the victim, told Fox 2 News that there is a hope that it was all a horrible accident.

“We hope that it was a mistake, we think that it was a mistake, we don’t think that he meant any harm to her or anything,” Sanders said.

A neighbor told Fox 2 News that the neighborhood dealt with little crime.

“We hardly ever lock our doors,” the neighbor,¬†Alexandra Fullbright said.

As of Friday, the husband was still in police custody. Investigators have not yet filed charges against him.
