LANSING − Two men have been charged in connection with a fatal shooting in Lansing earlier this week.
Grant Allen Thompson Jr., 53, and Marcus Dawan Thompson, 33, were arraigned on murder charges Friday in 54A District Court, court records indicate. A judge set a cash bond of $100,000 for each.
Lansing police said the charges are connected with the shooting death of Dominick Hopson Tuesday night in the 100 block of East Barnes Avenue. Officers responded to reports of shots fired and found Hopson, 32, lying in the street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police have released no other details about the incident.
A police official could not immediately be reached for comment on Friday afternoon, and it was unclear if the two Thompsons are related. No attorney was listed for either man in court records.
A hearing to determine whether they should stand trial on the charges was tentatively set for Sept. 30.
The shooting was Lansing's 14th homicide of 2022, according to data compiled by the State Journal. Of the 14 victims who've died in homicides this year, 12 were men. Eleven of the victims died by gun violence.
