Lansing police are investigating the city's eleventh homicide this year. It is the second in three days.

Police responded to a 911 call at about 1PM Thursday and found a woman dead in the apartment building at 1017 N. Washington Avenue in Old Town.

Investigators are not saying how the victim died or if there was evidence of forced entry. They will say only that the death is absolutely a homicide and that the victim likely knew the killer.

Police are concerned about the number of homicides in Lansing already this year.

Police spokesman Lt. Bruce Ferguson says "Everyone is working overtime to figure out the cases. Everyone trying to give the detectives a hand."

This is the second homicide this week in Lansing. It is the fourth open homicide being investigated by Lansing police.
