LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say actor Michael Jace called 911 and told the operator that he shot his wife in Los Angeles.

Detective Dean Vinluan said Tuesday that a printout of the incident history indicated that Jace made the statement to the operator.

Jace, who played a police officer on television, was arrested earlier in the day on suspicion of fatally shooting his wife.

Detectives were investigating whether the couple's financial or other marital difficulties might have played a role in the killing.

The body of April Jace, 40, was found in a hallway of the home, and police recovered a handgun believed to belong to her husband.

Jace, who appeared on the hit FX series "The Shield," was being held on $1 million bail.
