After 17 hours of investigating, Lansing Police say they are making progress, but they have no real leads as to who is responsible for shooting several Sexton High School students.

Officer Robert Merritt said a victim found at a local hospital around the same time as the other 3 victims was involved. That increases the number of shooting victims to four. News Ten is working to verify if the fourth teenager is also a Sexton High School student.

The four victims are described as:
14-year-old African American male,
15-year-old African American male,
17-year-old African American male
17-year-old African American female.

Lansing Police are petitioning the public to call in if they saw or know something (517) 483-4600. Police say the teens are not cooperating with investigators and that much of the useful information they have received has so far come from witnesses.

Detectives worked through the night to learn and discover as much as possible and they are processing all the evidence they have. They say more and more people have come forward with information.

The Lansing Police Department hopes to have an update sometime Wednesday afternoon. Stay tuned to WILX News Ten at 5 and 6 p.m. for the latest developments. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
