A 34-year-old Lansing woman who was shot at Wednesday night's fireworks show in Lansing, has died of her injuries. Lansing police announced the woman's death late Thursday afternoon.
It all started around 9:45 p.m. when officers at Adado Riverfront Park were told a woman was having a possible seizure by the boat docks. The woman was immediately taken to the hospital.
Then, around 11:15 p.m., the hospital called police and said they found a bullet lodged in the woman's head.
Among the hundreds who came out to the fireworks last night, Elizabeth Robins was one of them.
"We were getting ready to watch the fireworks and we saw this man run up to the police right in front of us…and we looked over to the side and we saw this woman shaking."
Robins didn't see what happened but saw the frantic moments that followed and was shocked to hear the news this morning.
"To find out she had a bullet in her head…that's like no way that could have been me that could have been that little girl...it could have been anybody," Robins said.
Police are still investigating but don't think the shot was fired from within the park.
"If it came from outside the park, there were definitely a lot of people on the other side of the river shooting off fireworks and who knows what else," Robins said.
Mayor Virg Bernero says he's angry about what happened, especially since the city did it's best to protect everyone who turned out.
"You couldn't walk 15, 20 feet without running into police, and I think people felt very assured by that," he said.
The mayor says it was the tightest security in years, with more than 100 officers on duty, who searched people before they came in.
"I don't know how you can prevent something like this…its outrageous...its depressing...we worked so hard…our team worked so hard to keep everyone safe," Bernero said.
Robins agrees, she says police were everywhere.
"To me it was some idiot shooting off his gun to celebrate not thinking of where its going to land and I would just pray that people would think first," she said.
For police finding on who did this is a top priority, Lt. Daryl Green says "were really truly upset about this and were going to fight to figure out what happened."
Police say there were no other incidents last night and their investigating the shooting death with help from the ATF.
They urge anyone who was there last night with information to call them at 517-483 6859 or you can call Crimestoppers at 483-STOP.
