UPDATE (9:45 A.M.) — Lansing Police Department has identified the 39-year-old victim as Daniel Jacob Cannarile. Police are now calling the shooting a homicide.
The Lansing Police Detective Bureau will be submitting detailed investigative reports to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office to review issuing criminal charges on the arrested 43-year-old suspect.
LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) –Lansing Police say a 39-year-old man was shot and killed Friday morning around 6:30 a.m. and they have a person of interest in custody.
Some who live near the complex said they heard the shots while getting their children ready for school and others who live there said they were still asleep.
“We heard some shots and everybody was out looking from their balconies. Up here on this little balcony and you know the police came, surrounded and dogs, everything,” said Dontrell Buchanan, an apartment resident.
Officers said they were called to the 3200 block of Washington Ave. and when they got there they saw the victim on the ground near the sidewalk. In addition, another person was seen running from the area.
Dontrell Buchanan said his 13-year-old son was getting ready for school when shots rang out from the parking lot. Buchanan said this isn’t the first time someone has been killed outside of the building.
“When I first moved in, it was a brother in the back that was killed three years ago,” he said. “This is the second time that I have seen something like this.”
Officers gave the victim first aid and he was taken to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. LPD is investigating the incident as a homicide.
Police said early information shows the 43-year-old suspect and the victim got into an altercation that ultimately led to the victim being shot.
6 News was on the scene and could see police walking a person of interest out of the South Washington Park apartments. Lansing Police also added they have a person of interest “identified, located and placed into custody.”
But no matter what their relationship, Brandie Olson said this is something that happens too much.
“I definitely heard the sirens and woke up to flashing lights. I didn’t hear the shooting this time. Sometimes you hear it, sometimes you don’t,” she said. “It’s common I don’t usually pay attention to it because I hear it so often, sadly.”
The Lansing Housing Commission owns the property. Executive Director Doug Fleming was not available
for an interview but said they have been cooperating with the police. He said while they do work with a security company, the commission is in the middle of hiring its own security staff.
The Lansing Police Department asks anyone with information to come forward by calling 517-483-4600.
