Police Celebrate "Peaceful" 4th Celebration

Lansing police responded to more than 50 fireworks complaints in the hours after the city's fireworks celebration on the 4th of July.

It's the second year that retail fireworks have been legal in Michigan, and cities like Lansing have been coming up with ordinances trying to address after-hours noise complaints.

Police also describe the festivities at Adado Riverfront park as "very peaceful" - saying there were only a few minor violations. They say the event was well-attended and crowd was "well behaved."

The department stepped up its presence at the event in 2013.

That's one year after one woman died when a stray bullet, which was likely fired into the air, landed on her head. That case remains unsolved.

Officers say they've handed out 28 citations over the last three days for a variety of offenses, including alcohol, curfew, and fireworks violations.
