Police say 25-year-old Trensio Mario Hood turned himself in Sunday morning. Hood is charged with four felonies in connection with a shooting on a Lansing playground Thursday.

The victim, 17-year-old Davin Lewis, remains in a condition police describe as "serious" at Sparrow Hospital.

It happened shortly after midnight Sunday morning.

"At about 12:30," according to Lansing Police Sgt. Tony Nettles.

25-year-old Trensio Hood, who goes by Mario, turned himself in to police -- after his lawyer negotiated the surrender with Lansing detectives.

"He was taken into custody without incident," Nettles said.

The arrest came after police announced Hood as their suspect Saturday afternoon. Police had already been looking for him since Friday.

"We cast a pretty wide net looking for the accused in this case," Capt. Ray Hall said Saturday.

Hood is charged with four felonies -- attempted murder, felony possession of a firearm, carrying a weapon in a school zone and habitual -- an enhancer for repeat offenders.

The charges are all in connection with the Thursday shooting of 17-year-old Davin Lewis on this playground at Lansing's Grand River elementary. The school is in the Northtown neighborhood of Lansing.

Detectives say tips from the neighborhood pointed their attention to Hood.

"We were able to talk to several witnesses at the playground," Det. James Gill said Saturday.

And now, thanks to the help of those witnesses, police believe a dangerous criminal -- is off the streets.
