By Jason Hughes

Michael Jace, perhaps best known for his prominent role in the FX series "The Shield," has reportedly been detained by Los Angeles police in connection to the shooting death of his wife. CBS Los Angeles reports that April Jace was found dead with gunshot wounds at 8:30 p.m in the 5400 block of Brynhurst Avenue.

At this time, Jace has reportedly not been arrested, but is being questioned by police.

Authorities were not able to confirm any names at this time. TheWrap spoke with Sergeant Scott Blackman at 77th Division, which is handling the investigation. "All we can say is [we're] definitely dealing with a homicide investigation on Brynhurst," he said. "But I can't say who is involved."

The LA Times reported on a shooting in the 5400 block of Brynhurst, though it did not specify names. In that story, Officer Faden said that police were trying to determine if the shooting was accidental or a homicide. "It looks to have started as a domestic-related incident," she said.

Pamela Chelin contributed to this report.
