LANSING - A man is robbed at the point of a shotgun Thursday morning in Lansing. Shortly before 9 'clock an employee of "The Swap Meet" shop at MLK Blvd. and Cavanaugh Rd. was approached by two men, one of which carried a shot gun. The man says they demanded cash. He gave it to them. The men then ran off. Police were quickly called and brought in dogs to track the thieves. Dogs led police to a the nearby Marvin Gardens Apartments, but officers were unable to locate any suspects.
No shots were fired and no one was hurt. Police continue to investigate.

    Was the shotgun a Warbler or Mossberg? those guns usually jam and are not that accurate. The guy could've been taken down.

    What gives?! This is in the news every. single. week. I see a pattern here and it isn't good. Every law abiding citizen should look into arming themselves. It's your right, nobody else is going to do it for you, exercise the 2nd amendment!

      Well said, Jason. These guys would've died from "lead poisoning" if they tried this with me!

    Lansing is out of control. Soon it will be a lot like Flint. The mayor needs to stop his BS and start looking for ways to get control of his city. Im so glad I dont live in that town, but worry about some family members who do. Its scary reading about all the thugs living there.
