BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A 74-year-old Michigan woman has been charged with murder in the shooting death of her 17-year-old grandson.

Police say Jonathan Hoffman called 911 and told a dispatcher that he had been shot in the chest by his grandmother and "was going to die." By the time officers arrived, at least four more shots from a .40-caliber handgun had been pumped into the high school senior.

A West Bloomfield Township detective told a judge during a Monday court hearing that eight entry and exit wounds were found in Hoffman's body after the Friday shooting in the condo he shared with his grandparents northwest of Detroit.

Sandra Layne's lawyer Jerome Sabbota has said Hoffman was troubled, Layne was afraid and she fired her new handgun because she felt she had no choice.
