East Lansing Police are still trying to piece together what happened this past weekend that left a 20 year old man from Detroit dead.

Police have said that they are at a crossroads with the lack of information they have right now and they need the public to come forward.

"We have vague and general descriptions not very many witnesses have come forward and those we have talked to, the information has been very limited," said Captain Thomas Johnstone of the East Lansing Police Department.

East Lansing and Bath Township police are questioning witnesses after an apartment party turned violent.

"One of our officers came across a vehicle in the middle of Abbot Road in the 1700 block and saw several people running from a vehicle," said Captain Johnstone.

Inside the car was 20 year old Adrian House. Police aren't saying much on what led to the shooting and they won't confirm, nor deny if drugs were involved. But they are saying that a confrontation took place on Coleman Road and the exact events that transpired before are unclear.

Johnstone says a lot of shots were fired at the Crossings Place apartment complex and witnesses say it all began on the first floor of building number three and then carried onto Abbot Road.

"We have several vehicles leaving the scene at a high rate of speed and last seen by witnesses traveling South on Abbot Road," said Johnstone.

Among the vehicles seen speeding away were a white SUV and a silver Cadillac or sedan. The investigation is still ongoing but they need the public's help.

"It's obvious there were a number of people at that apartment complex on Coleman. A lot of people probably saw and heard verbal and physical confrontation in that building," said Johnstone.

If you have any tips, you're urged to call the East Lansing Police Department (517) 319-6848 or Bath Township Police (517) 641-6728.

    Here's the thing, Management and Security here are a JOKE. They won't let us out of our leases because they don't believe we should be able to. If anyone were to come forward, whether management or police want to say so - NOBODY would protect us. This has been made obvious through this event.

    They need to post a reward or something to make these kids come forward. I was outside dropping some kids off and before they got out of the cab the gunshots rang out. They got text messages from friends. But wouldn't say anything in fear the cops would wanna talk to them. They said these dudes are not someone you wanna tell on!!! So offer a rewards to make them come forward. Offer addresses to leave anonymous tips to or a drop box, text or email tips to.
