DETROIT — A 49-year-old Pontiac man is dead following a fight at General Motors' Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, the Oakland County Sheriff's Office confirmed Thursday in a news release.
The sheriff's office also said in the release that it had a 48-year-old male coworker in custody.
In the release Oakland County Sheriff's Communications Officer Steve Huber said detectives will present the case to prosecutors Friday for possible homicide charges. Also, the release said the suspect's hometown was not known, but the victim worked at the plant for about seven months.
Detectives are withholding the victim's name until a positive identification is made. An autopsy is to be performed Thursday.
GM has security at all of its factories. In this case, the fight happened during off-production hours. The sheriff's office confirmed both men worked for a cleaning service hired by GM. GM hires vendors to do such work as well as some maintenance and parts distribution to the assembly.
GM confirmed the plant was shut down Thursday for the investigation.
Huber said earlier Thursday that "there was an altercation and we have detectives on the scene. It happened at 1:37 in the morning and there was no risk to the public."

Huber, in the later release, described what happened:
Deputies arrived to find the victim "unconscious and bleeding." He said CPR was performed but deputies could not revive him. "He was pronounced dead at the scene," the release said.
Huber said in the release that the suspect was found in a dock area not far from the victim's body.
The sheriff's office did not know how long the suspect had worked at the plant.
Huber said in the release: "The item used in the slaying was recovered. The incident and possible motive remain under investigation."
