The 53-year-old doctor was found shot dead inside his home in the Boston-Edison Historic District on Sunday.
Detroit Police Chief James White stated during a press conference on Friday that preliminary investigation indicates that the two parties knew each other, and that the shooting was not a random act.
Police have taken the person of interest into custody on an unrelated charge, but Chief White believes he may have information about Hoover’s death.
The Detroit Police Department Homicide Unit is investigating Hoover’s shooting death, which could be linked to a domestic situation. The motive for the shooting remains unclear.
Dr. Hoover’s death has shocked the Detroit medical community and locals who have praised him as an “amazing doctor.”
His former patient, Sheryl Gibbs Leaver, told Fox News Digital that she is “heartbroken” and hopes that his killer is caught and brought to justice.
