The blogosphere is lit up over reports that film and television actor Michael Jace has been arrested for suspicion in the murder of his wife April at their Los Angeles home last night. TMZ is reporting that the actor called 911 and told them, “I shot my wife.” Jace stayed on the phone with police until officers arrived at his home. The couple’s two sons were present during the shooting. They were taken into custody where it took four hours for social services to send a relative to care for the children.

The couple had been married for nine years.

Jace is best known for his role in FX’s cop drama ‘The Shield.’ He has also starred in a number of films including State of Play, The Replacements, Forrest Gump and The Fan.
