UPDATE: Victim Identified in Deadly Emmet County Shooting

Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened just before 11:00 p.m., Sunday, at 6866 Island View Road, in Readmond Township, near Harbor Springs. Someone from the home called 911 asking for help, but then changed their mind and hung up. Police pursued the call anyway. When they got to the home they found 24-year-old Nicholaus Sowers shot to death. Police are not releasing the name of the accused shooter yet, but say they found and arrested him at a nearby home. They say the two men are extended family members but are not sure what lead the shooter to pull out the gun. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details.
