Actor Michael Jace, best known for his role on FX's "The Shield," allegedly shot and killed his wife in front of their two young children this week, TMZ reported.

Following a domestic dispute, 50-year-old Jace reportedly called police at around 8:30 p.m. Monday night, telling them "I shot my wife," according to the gossip site. The actor then stayed on the phone as instructed until officers from the Los Angeles Police Department arrived at his Hyde Park home.

Officials went inside and found April Jace, 40, dead.

Michael Jace was taken into custody around 1 a.m. Tuesday, and Los Angeles Police Detective Lyman Doster told CNN on Tuesday morning that the actor had been charged with the fatal shooting of his wife of nine years.

TMZ reported that it took Child Protective Services four hours to arrive at the station, around 4 a.m., and take the two children — who are both under 10 years old — to the home of a family member.

In addition to playing Christian LAPD officer Julien Lowe on "The Shield", Jace's resume also included appearances on shows like "Southland" and "The Mentalist." He also had a minor role as a Black Panther member in the movie "Forrest Gump."
