KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say officers are investigating two suspicious deaths at a Kalamazoo Township apartment complex. 

The Kalamazoo Township Police Department said investigators believe the deaths happened after 9 p.m. Monday inside an apartment at the Oak Tree apartments located off Nazareth Road between Gull Road and Main Street. 

Police were called Tuesday after neighbors noticed a sliding glass door had been shattered.

Investigators didn’t provide any additional information about the deaths Wednesday.

Patriece Spain lives in the area and knew the couple who lived in the apartment. She says they mostly kept to themselves. 

“They said hi when I was in passing; they said hi and bye,” she said. “Nothing really seemed off about them.”

She heard gunshots Monday night but could not figure out where they were coming from.  

“I was like asleep and around 9:30. I heard like gunshots, like six or seven shots, so I jump up, I grab my kids and I throw them in the bathroom. I said, ‘Wait right here and hide,’ and I checked all the windows and I didn’t see nobody — no police or no sirens,” Spain said. 

Hours before the gunshots, Spain heard arguing around 7 a.m. Monday.

“It woke me up out of my sleep,” Spain said. “It was like just getting thrown up against the wall so that woke me up as well. And then like that same day, I seen them two walking and they were like speed walking. Usually they drive. They had no coats, no hats, jacket, nothing.”

She says the apartment complex is normally a quiet neighborhood and was surprised to hear of the investigation. 

“The bullet could have came through the wall and hit my kids or one of my neighbor’s kids,” Spain said.
