Congressman Dan Kildee’s Brother Fatally Shot In Michigan

Timothy Kildee, brother of Congressman Dan Kildee from Michigan, was tragically killed in a shooting that occurred during a domestic incident, as confirmed by the police.

“Our family is filled with profound sorrow and sadness. It is incredibly challenging to put into words the immense loss we feel for our dear brother and cherished member of our family, especially considering the horrific circumstances,” expressed Mr. Kildee on Tuesday.

Since 2013, the Michigan Democrat has served in Congress.

“I am grateful to the community for respecting my family’s need for privacy during this incredibly challenging period,” he expressed his gratitude.

According to Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson, Timothy Kildee tragically lost his life in the early hours of March 19th in Vienna Township, located northwest of Detroit. This information was reported by WNEM.


The sheriff’s office received a call about a domestic incident in Burton shortly before 3 am on Tuesday. According to Sheriff Swanson, the suspect, who is 27 years old, is a family member who came to the house. During the encounter, a verbal confrontation took place, and the suspect brandished a firearm.

According to the sheriff, the suspect exited the house on foot and reached out to his birth mother. Between the initial confrontation and 5am, the mother came to pick up her son and took him to his father’s residence in Vienna township, Timothy Kildee, aged 57.

According to the sheriff, the second son reported hearing a heated argument in which the suspect demanded, “Give me your wallet and your keys.” Interestingly, the wallet was later found on the suspect.

The suspect reportedly stole Mr. Kildee’s car and, in a matter of eight minutes, collided with another vehicle at a high speed. Thankfully, the other driver sustained only minor injuries. Currently, the suspect is under custody at Hurley Hospital, where a guard is stationed.

According to the sheriff, there were no additional suspects under investigation.

According to WNEM, Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton stated that there have been no charges filed at this time.

According to him, if we were to analyze the current facts, the suspect could potentially be charged with several offenses. These may include open murder, carjacking, armed robbery, using a firearm during a felony, carrying a concealed weapon, and a motor vehicle violation.
