ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – An apparent murder and barricaded gunman situation in Oakland County leaves two men dead. Police say the body of 72-year-old Harry Berkowitz was found shot to death inside his home near 13 Mile and Inkster.
He was a longtime resident of Franklin and taught at West Maple Elementary School in Birmingham.
Police think Ian Matthews, a man in his 30′s who lived with Berkowitz, may be connected to the murder. Matthews barricaded himself inside a Royal Oak home, before fatally shooting himself.
