LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Lansing Police Department officials say one man was shot and killed at an apartment complex near the intersection of South Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Jolly Road.
When officers arrived following a 911 call around 6:45 Friday morning, they found a 23-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his chest. He was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
“I’ve seen people get their tail whooped out here, I’ve seen people get smacked around,” said neighbor Kyrus Amon.
“This was my first experience seeing all this, seeing them carrying out a body. It’s kind of scary to think about it because you never know if they’ll come to your building next and get you. It’s heartbreaking because that someone’s uncle, father.”
Police said there was also another person injured in the incident, but it is not clear if they were shot.
Officials said they believe the shooting happened after a fight.
