LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The victim in a shooting that left one dead and two others wounded in Lansing on Sunday has been identified.
The Lansing Police Department (LPD) has identified the victim as 42-year-old Richard Simmons.
Just after 3 a.m. Sunday, Lansing Police officers responded to a report of a shooting on City Market Drive. Upon arrival, they found a male victim with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
While investigating, a nearby hospital reported two more victims with apparent gunshot wounds. A 37-year-old woman and a 41-year-old male both had multiple gunshot wounds but were listed as stable and are expected to survive.
