Tommie Caldwell, 63, was fatally shot when robbers entered the northwest Detroit home he shared with his wife.

Caldwell was forced back into his home by a gunman Wednesday morning as he exited to head to work.

According to reports, Caldwell struggled with the man and begged him not to hurt his wife before he was fatally wounded. His 64-year-old wife, Alberta Caldwell, was spared.

“He begged them not to hurt her because she’s in remission,” Alberta Caldwell’s sister Ethel Jackson said, explaining that Alberta has been battling breast cancer. “He told her that they were being robbed.”
