Detroit Father Guns Down Wife, Son Before Killing Self

Police say a Detroit man fatally shot his common-law wife and adult son before turning the gun on himself, MyFoxDetroit.com reports. 

Police say a Detroit man fatally shot his common-law wife and adult son before turning the gun on himself, MyFoxDetroit.com reports.

Detectives say Eugene Fraser shot his 21-year-old son Monday morning in their Warren home, picked up his wife, Donna Chance, from the home improvement store where she worked, fatally shot her as he drove and then killed himself before slamming into a tree.

The couple had been together for more than 20 years and had two children, the station reports.

Fraser, 46, reportedly worked at a cement company with his 21-year-old son, Robert.

"He did all our cement work in our house in Detroit, and his son's a very hard worker. He worked with his dad from knee on high," family friend Janet Klein told the station.

Detective Sgt. Heidi Metz told The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens that police "have no idea what spurred this," saying Fraser's daughter reports the family calmly dined together on Sunday.

MyFoxDetroit.com reports that Robert Fraser posted a message on his Facebook page on April 1, saying, "First day to back to work. I hope me and my old man get along better this year."
