Jace’s wife April was found dead with gunshot wounds in the couple’s Los Angeles home, and The Shield star Jace was detained by L.A. police. According to the transcript of Jace’s father-in-law’s 911 call, released Thursday, the actor admitted shooting April. “My son-in-law called me, and [texted] me, and said come get the kids because he shot April, our daughter,” April’s father told the dispatcher.
