Lansing Police are investigating the shooting of a teenager on Highland Street Friday evening. Officers found the victim in the street. He would not cooperate with them and was in surgery at last check.

The victim's parents were both arrested following the shooting. Police tell wilx.com the father charged officers with a baseball bat, then punched an officer. It took a taser to subdue him before he could be cuffed. Police expect the mother to face some sort of obstruction charge.

No arrests have been made in the actual shooting and police do not have any suspects yet, though it is still early in the investigation.

    This is the result of having religion denied in school.

    Anonymous, You nailed the problems with society right on the head. Life is becoming trivial to everyone.

    To sound cruel; if the parents did this exact same thing 18 years earlier, it would have been deemed a constitutional right to allow a mother to abort a child. It is a matter of perspective.

    He should be glad he got tazed and not the discharge of a Glock 9mm. At least the officer doesn't have to deal with the fallout from a shooting.

    WOW! Just another cover up, got to protect the hood. When will you people realize that until you rat this trash out the violance will never stop. So is life in fear and termoil realy worth it. I just dont understand how you can complain about how there isnt enough being done to keep us safe and then you wont help the police take this trash down.

    How disrespectful for the parents to act like that. And what is that showing the child? Obviously not much! They need to be teaching respect and not disrespect! That is the problem with some of the children today! I emphasize SOME, because not all children are bad children.
