Woman’s Boyfriend Killed In Coolidge Rd. Shooting

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WLNS) - A father of three, 27-years-old and a life cut short.

Most importantly he was a good person, says Nick Ellena.

"It's just so sad how his life was taken away so violently,” said Nick Ellena, daughter was dating Jordan Rogers.

Nick's daughter, Sarah and Jordan had been dating for a few years.

"He was a hardworking man, very respectful of women, took care of my granddaughters quite nicely, very nice young man,” said Ellena.

A man Ellena says knew the man next door who went by Ricard, simply as a neighbor for about six months.

He says the two got in an argument the night before, which was Sunday, May 11.

"Jordan was trying to get him to quiet down from what I understand; it was a lot of noise being made,” said Ellena.

But the two parted ways Sunday evening. Ellena says loud noise from Ricard was an ongoing concern for Sarah and Jordan. Sarah thought it would be resolved Monday morning.

"He was coming over to patch up what had happened the night before, to apologize.”

But that's not what happened. This father says it could've been worse.

"She had just left a half hour before this had happened.”

Now tragically the Ellena and Rogers families are left planning a funeral.

"I just want to give my condolences to them and let everyone know that this was a good man,” a man taken away from his family too soon.
