According to WKZO Radio, a love triangle reportedly led to the shooting of Brent Hook on Tuesday morning. Their sources have indicated to them that Hook was dating Peter Zwart’s estranged wife.
Zwart and his wife were reportedly in divorce proceedings. Hook and his wife were also reportedly going through a divorce, as well, according to WWMT TV.
Hook was found shot at his place of business on Tuesday morning by an individual — later identified as Zwart. Hook was reportedly shot five times, according to reports, and was found at approx. 7:30 am local time by an employee, who was reporting to the business to go to work.
Zwart reportedly informed his family members that he had shot Hook after the incident. That led the authorities to be called and alert them that Zwart was involved in a shooting.
Once the authorities arrived at his location, Zwart was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Both Hook and Zwart are reportedly racers at Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo, Michigan. While the authorities have not given a motive, friends have told media outlets that the two individuals knew each other.
Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller has said that their case is closed with Zwart dead.
He also said that Hook is still in critical condition at Bronson Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.
