ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) - An autopsy shows that a University of Michigan medical student died from a single gunshot wound.

Ann Arbor police on Friday announced the findings of the Washtenaw County medical examiner’s office.

They also said no firearm was found at the scene of Paul DeWolf’s apartment, which was orderly and the valuables appeared to be untouched when officers arrived on Wednesday.

DeWolf failed to arrive for a scheduled assignment at the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital that day. The hospital sent a colleague to the home to check on him, and that person discovered the 25-year-old had died.

DeWolf was a 2010 graduate of Grand Valley State University and is from Schoolcraft. He was to graduate from the medical school next spring.

Nearby resident Abby Lemon tells WWJ the death is the latest in a series of incidents that have left she and her roommate feeling unsettled.

“Our house is getting broken into, this possible homicide – then there were all the rapes a couple of years ago – not too far away … safe, but definitely still … safety’s an issue,” said Lemon.

Ann Arbor police are actively investigating this crime. Anyone with information is asked to call the Ann Arbor Police tip line 734-794-6939. You can also email TIPS@a2gov.org, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
