ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) -

Ann Arbor Police say the death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student Paul DeWolf is being investigated as a homicide.

DeWolf was a 3rd-year medical student. He was also an active duty Second Lieutenant, U.S. Air Force.

Those who knew DeWolf tell Fox 2's Erica Erickson that he was funny guy who liked to go running.
