The shooting happened Sunday around 2:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the 7-11 located at Michigan and Grand River Avenues. Joseph Parker, 34, of Lansing was shot several times and later died. George Whitfield, 32, was also hit. Police say Whitfield's injuries are not life threatening. After the shots were fired, the gunman made his getaway.

East Lansing Police Captain Juli Liebler says the man got into a vehicle, officers spotted it shortly after and pursued the vehicle into Lansing. All three men were later caught.

Names are being withheld until the three men are arraigned. A court date is scheduled for Tuesday morning in East Lansing District Court. Charges could include homicide and attempted homicide.
