A 31-year-old man was shot and killed in the 1300 block of Roosevelt Ave, late Sunday night. Lansing Police say it's the city's first murder of 2014. At this point in 2013, there had already been four.

Police received the call at around 11:30 p.m. When paramedics arrived at the home, they found Jo Lee Van Buren, 31, dead inside. According to police, Van Buren was shot after having a confrontation with another man who entered the home.

The suspect then fled on foot in an unknown direction. Police are compiling evidence and searching for the suspect. The motive is unclear, although it doesn't seem to be a random act.

Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Brad St. Aubin at 483-6862.
