3 shootings, 1 pursuit, 1 arrest overnight in Lansing

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Police had a busy morning in the early hours of Sunday, with three shootings in the city of Lansing between 1:30-4:30 a.m.

A suspect also led multiple police agencies on a pursuit from the southside to the northside of Lansing in the early hours of the morning, an LPD official said.

As of early Sunday afternoon, two people are recovering from non-life-threatening gunshot injuries. One woman is in police custody.

Lansing Police Dept. Sgt. Dillon Reust told 6 News that police had responded around 1:45 a.m. to the 5200 block of South Cedar Street, for a victim who said he’d been shot in the chest.

Police learned that the shooting had happened at a gathering the Eldorado Event Center on South Cedar Street. The victim is now recovering at the hospital from non-life-threatening injuries, Reust said.

Police also found bullet casings on the scene and found out that a fight had happened between multiple people at the event center. The shooting is still under investigation.

Officers then responded at around 3 a.m. to a separate shooting incident. The shooting happened on Dakin Street in Lansing, near the intersection with Walsh Street.

When officers arrived on scene, they found out the accused person and the victim had both left the area. The victim, who was shot in two places including her wrist, had driven herself to the hospital.

Police ultimately found spent bullets in the road, and also bullet holes in two cars, including the one that the victim had been driving.

The woman who was shot on Dakin Street is also expected to recover from her injuries, which police said are non-life-threatening.

How LPD is handling gun violence in Lansing

The shooting on Dakin Street, which police said appeared to have happened at a party at someone’s home, is under investigation.

Around 4:30 a.m., police got reports of a third separate incident. A woman called several times saying another woman was threatening to kill her.

Several police agencies, who were already helping LPD because of the first two early-morning incidents, responded to the report of the third incident.

Police responded to the 4900 block of Christiansen Road, near Jolly, in Lansing. While the caller was on the phone, responders heard gunshots. The gunfire hit the caller’s home, but did not hit a person, police said.

The caller gave police a name and description of the alleged shooter. Shortly after, police attempted to stop the alleged shooter’s car, but she drove away and the responding officers pursued her from the southside to the northside of Lansing.

At one point, the suspect threw the gun out the window of the car. Police eventually caught her on the northside of town and arrested her. She is now in custody.

Sgt. Reust told 6 News that the law enforcement agencies involved in pursuing the suspect were from Lansing, Ingham County, Lansing Township, Delta Township and Clinton County.

Reust said there have been no arrests so far for the first two shootings in Lansing Sunday, but “I’m confident that we’re going to get some names, if we haven’t already.”
