Police were called to investigate a shooting before they arrived at the couple’s Los Angeles home on Monday evening. TMZ reports that Michael Jace called 911 around 8:30 p.m. and told police, “I shot my wife."

Los Angeles police said in a statement that the incident “is believed to be domestic violence,” reports the LA Times. Jace was detained for questioning Monday night, and was being held Tuesday, May 20, with a bail of $1 million.
