LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office has charged two people with open murder for their role in a shooting on July 3.
Lansing police say 42-year-old Richard Simmons was shot and killed after an ‘altercation’ on the 300 block of City Market Dr. near Rotary Park.
Now, 41-year-old Jermine Davis and 37-year-old Jamie Melton have both been charged with open murder.
In addition, Davis is facing one count of carrying a concealed weapon, and felon in possession of a fire arm, and Melton is being charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
Davis was issued no bond, while Melton got a $100,000 cash bond.
When the initial incident happened, police said a 37-year-old woman and 41-year-old man were also shot. It is unclear if that was Davis and Melton.
Police provided a picture of Melton, but said there is no current photo of Davis.
