Michael Jace: Charged in Fatal Shooting of Wife

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Michael Jace has been charged with murder.

As previously reported, the actor (best known for his long-running role of Julien Lowe on FX's The Shield) called 911 around 8:30 last night and admitted to shooting his wife, April Jace.

He remained on the line with a dispatcher until LAPD officers arrived at the couple's residence and found April's dead body.

Jace was brought in for questioning overnight and charged with homicide this morning.

No other details - murder weapon, motive, etc. - are available at this time, although one report claims Jace's two children witnessed the shooting.

Along with The Shield, Jace is credited with roles on Southland, The Mentalist, CSI and Private Pratice.

He also played Michael Jordan in a 1999 movie about the NBA legend and portrayed a Black Panthers member in Forrest Gump.

The oft-quoted NRA stance that guns don't kill people, people do is simply a pathetic excuse for the fact human emotions ALWAYS override common sense when guns are too readily available.
Bush didn't have to go to Iraq for "weapons of mass destruction"...they're stockpiled right next door in your neighbor's home.
