Doctor found shot dead at Detroit home during well-being check


(DETROIT) — A Michigan doctor has been found shot dead, sparking an investigation by Detroit police’s homicide unit.

The body of 53-year-old Devon Hoover was discovered when officers responded to a house for a well-being check on Sunday evening, Detroit police said.

Hoover, a neurosurgeon, had “a special interest in the treatment of neck and back disorders,” according to his employer, Ascension Michigan.
