UAW Vice President General Holiefield: ‘Oh my God. What Did I Do?’ After Accidentally Shooting Wife, Police Report Says

Source: Elisha Anderson / Detroit Free Press

UAW Vice President General Holiefield, who pleaded no contest Wednesday to reckless use of a firearm, told deputies he didn’t know what happened moments after his wife was shot, according to a 15-page report by the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

Holiefield, 60, told police he was sitting at the kitchen table at his Harrison Township home on Dec. 30 and his wife, Monica Morgan, was to his left when the gun went off and she screamed. Holiefield, who is left-handed, had picked up his .45-caliber pistol with his right hand to clean it and attempted to pull back the slide with his left hand when it went off.

“Maybe I touched the trigger,” Holiefield told deputies who responded to the accidental shooting. He then said it was his gun, and he shot his wife, the report said.

The report, obtained by the Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act, includes interviews with Holiefield, Morgan and two witnesses who were at the home in the 39700 block of Mazuchet Drive when the gun went off.
