UPDATE: Two in Custody After Shooting in Lansing Injures One, Damages Vehicles

By  | 

An active crime scene spans more than two miles of Lansing streets, as police try to get to the bottom of a shooting that left one man with a gunshot wound to the head.

"I can assure you and the public that the person or persons responsible for this crime are going to be held accountable and we're not going to tolerate the gun violence in this city," said Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski. "The Lansing Police Department is bringing in all available resources: our federal, our county, our state resources and we're going after them. We're going to hold them accountable."

Shots were fired from a vehicle near the intersection of Miller and Wise, on Lansing's south side. Several vehicles sustained damage from the shots.

A short time later a victim with a gunshot wound to the back of the head was found at a car wash near the intersection of Cedar Street and Northrup Ave. He was taken from the scene by emergency crews on a stretcher.

Police pursued suspects to the Georgetown Apartments where one of the men abandoned the vehicle, and ran toward the clubhouse in the complex. Officers apprehended the driver and were able to stop the fleeing suspect. Both men were taken into custody without incident.

"As far as what role they played here, it's just too early into the investigation," said Yankowski. "And that's the whole purpose of what the detectives and officers are going to work through throughout the night."

Police are questioning one man in relation to the shooting. They're not sure if the second man has tie-ins.

"We've said this before and we'll say it again, for those that are choosing gun violence, and to settle their problems with gun violence and to put their communities in harm's way is not going to be tolerated," Yankowski said.

A canine unit and investigators continue to work multiple scenes, interviewing witnesses to get to the bottom of things.
