The Daily Mail is reporting that Michael Jace, an actor on The Shield, has allegedly shot his wife, April.  The two had been married for ten years.  Police are reporting that the shooting occurred in Los Angeles at the couple’s home.  They are also reporting that the couple’s two children were present in the home at the time of the shooting.  Mrs. Jace had a child from a previous relationship, but it is unclear where this child was at the time of the shooting.  Both of the Jace’s children are under 10 and were distraught after witnessing their mother’s death.


Jace called 911 and reportedly confessed to the shooting around 8:30 pm Monday evening.  When authorities arrived, Jace was taken into custody, and the children were taken to the local police station.  Authorities were reportedly angered by the fact that it took Children’s Services four hours to pick the children up from the police station to take them to a family member.  The children are currently placed in protective custody.

Jace is being held in custody with his bail set at $1 million.
