The Roscommon County Sheriff's Department tells us a domestic dispute unfolded between a man and a woman.

They say they Dilles Walker was holding a woman against her will inside a home in Nester Township. It started around 3:00 p.m on Sunday.

We're told at some point the woman tried to call 911 but Walker shot the phone. He also made threats to kill anyone who came near the home and himself.
