(UPDATE 12:45 p.m.)– Police are still looking for details in a shooting that sent five people to the hospital early this morning. What they know so far is that it started at a party that had more than 100 people in the early hours at Towne Square apartment complex.
Lansing Police Chief Daryl Green says it was a dynamic situation and tells 6 News the shooting happened outside a building in the complex. More than a dozen cars were hit by bullets.
Investigators spent the morning marking the damage and talking to people who lived nearby.
“We’ll be leaning on our federal partners to assist us in this investigation as well,” Green says. “And at this point the community knows we need all the help we can get.”
After seeing so many people in one space with few masks being worn and little to no social distancing, Green says he’s concerned about so many people getting together in the middle of a pandemic– and wants to hold all of the people responsible accountable.
