'I shot my wife': The moment The Shield star Michael Jace was arrested after ringing 911 to say he had killed his spouse

  • Jace, 48, taken in for questioning by LAPD following shooting at his Los Angeles mansion
  • April Jace, a mother-of-three, was found dead from gunshot wounds at 8.30pm on Monday
  • Actor had called 911 and confessed to the killing, according to TMZ
  • He has appeared in various shows including Southland and Burn Notice

The Shield actor Michael Jace called 911 and told police 'I shot my wife' after allegedly pulling the trigger on the 40-year-old at the couple's Los Angeles mansion on Monday while their children were home.

Jace, 48, confessed to the shooting on a 911 call at 8.30pm, according to police sources who spoke to http://www.tmz.com/2014/05/20/michael-jace-arrested-wife-shot-april/" rel="nofollow - TMZ .

The couple's two children, who are both under 10, witnessed the shooting and were taken to the police station.

Shortly before Jace reported the incident, police had received calls from neighbors in the Hyde Park area who said they heard shots being fired inside the property.

According to TMZ, the hulking actor remained on the phone as instructed by dispatchers until LAPD officers arrived.

When officers entered the house they found April Jace, a mother-of-three, dead from gunshot wounds. Jace was taken into custody for questioning and was later booked over his wife's death.

Police confirmed that at least two children - the third child is from a previous relationship - were in the home at the time of the shooting.

They have been placed in protective custody but officers were reportedly furious it took Children's Services four hours to get to the station and take the children to a family member. The kids were distraught, TMZ sources said.

CBS reports that Jace is being questioned by detectives. He was pictured at the scene on Monday night and appeared distraught as he spoke to an officer.

According to the http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-woman-shot-and-killed-in-south-la-20140519-story.html" rel="nofollow - Los Angeles Times , detectives with the 77th division are determining whether the shooting was an accident or a homicide.

Officer Sara Faden told the newspaper: 'It looks to have started as a domestic-related incident.'

The death sparked a huge investigation with police officers and news crews flooding the area.

Overnight assignment editor at CBS Joshua Crompton tweeted: '#BREAKING Actor Michael Jace detained in connection to the shooting death of his wife. Jace best known for his role of a cop in The Shield'.

April and Michael Jace celebrated their ten-year wedding anniversary last June.

Photos from April's Facebook page show her playing happily with her three children, the oldest of whom is thought to be from a previous relationship.

Tragic.

Always a good idea to take a deep breath when you're angry or leave the room, drink a cold glass of water... anything to calm yourself down 'cuz if you don't your next move might be one you'll regret. I feel for those kids. No mommy or daddy now.

As big as he is, using a gun can only be that he really wanted her dead or it was a tragic accident.

Wow..shooting your children's mother in front of them.   All kinds of emotional issues for those kids. RIP


Also, is Jennifer Bitterman (ex-wife) and why is she famous? Not sure why divorcing Jennifer Bitterman was important to note in the article. Did he have a history of domestic violence with her?

May the Lord Watch Over & Bless her soulHeart
whether he's mentally ill, on narcotics, afraid she was gonna expose his dl life THIS wasn't the way to do things @ this point he's derangedSick i don't even know what to think for what the children saw/ the police say they were VERY upset after seeing what he did to their motherCryso now they'll be DEEPLY disturbed/ will have mental help to work through & make sure they're alrightPinch i think age gap was TOO much anyways he's 51yrs old not 48 why he had to date sooo young (control issues)Angry

this is when the older women in church moan a spiritual hymnal & just bow they heads and pray about the whole situation ... amenHeart

no guns in the house!

There is just no reason for this at all. This couldn't have been the first time he's been violent with her and it's tragic it came to this without an intervention of some kind 

Whatever it was, was it worth her life, the children getting emotionally scarred and essentially orphaned, his freedom

Never.

Michael Jace Abused First Wife, Wife He Killed Testified For Him During Divorce

Documents from the divorce proceedings of Michael Jace’s previous marriage have surfaced. The papers report that he was intensely physically abusive toward his ex-wife in front of their infant son, in a startlingly similar instance of abuse that led to http://bossip.com/967305/the-shield-actor-michael-jace-charged-with-murdering-his-wife-in-front-to-their-2-children-43081/" rel="nofollow - the death of his current wife . Via http://www.tmz.com/2014/05/20/michael-jace-domestic-violence-wife-dead-divorce/" rel="nofollow - TMZ :

Michael Jace was a violent, abusive husband who choked his wife in front of their kid … this according to legal docs from his prior divorce.

Jace — who was booked Tuesday morning for allegedly murdering his wife April — went through a divorce in 1997. In the docs — obtained by TMZ — a friend of Jennifer Bitterman claims she personally witnessed Jace choking and slamming Jennifer against a wall … as his 6-month-old son screamed in his crib next to them.

The friend says he was raging and out of control and “seeing the extent of his anger was one of the most terrifying things I have ever seen.”

The friend continues … there were multiple physical assaults on the ex-wife.

There are a millions ways to end a life......and when one person is determined or has lost control they will find a way to accomplish that.......had he not reached for a gun he would reached for her throat.....a knife.....a hammer.....hell he could've beaten her to death....
