Police Release Audio Of 911 Call Made Before Fatal Shooting [AUDIO]

MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WWJ/AP) — A suburban Detroit woman can be heard over a 911 call telling her husband to leave their home before police say she was fatally shot.

The Macomb County sheriff’s office released audio Monday of part of the call made early Saturday by 38-year-old Ebony Byrom.

Byrom told a dispatcher that the couple had a dispute and her 44-year-old husband was retrieving some belongings. She is heard saying “you’ll come back another day, another time.”

She later was shot several times and died at the Macomb Township home, north of Detroit. Police say Hal Byrom shot himself in the neck and is hospitalized.

Sheriff Anthony Wickersham says Hal Byrom is named in a murder warrant.

“We did secure a first-degree murder warrant with the Macomb County prosecutor’s office,” Wickersham said. “There’s some concerns about them doing any kind of arraignment until he’s aware of what’s going on and what he’s being charged with.”

Hal Byrom remains unconscious and hospitalized under armed guard.

Ebony Byrom’s 16-year-old son from a previous relationship was in the home during the shooting.
