UPDATE: This story has been updated at the end with new information from ELPD.
East Lansing police are investigating two separate shootings that took place in a matter of hours over the past weekend, Deputy Chief Steve Gonzalez confirmed on Tuesday morning.
On Saturday, Oct. 30, according to Gonzalez, the East Lansing Police Department was dispatched to the 3900 block of Halter Lane in the Falcon Pointe area. Arriving around 8 p.m., officers found two people dead from apparent gunshot wounds, Gonzalez said.
The official causes of death will come with autopsy results, Gonzalez said, and police are considering that it could be a double homicide or a murder-suicide.
“Based on the information learned to this point we do not have any outstanding suspects we are looking for,” Gonzalez wrote in an email to ELi.
Shortly after midnight that evening, at around 2 a.m. on Oct. 31, officers responded to “the report of gunfire” near or in the parking lot off Albert Street, near the intersection with M.A.C. Avenue (the lot near CVS), Gonzalez said.
One person had sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to the hospital, Gonzalez said, where they are “currently still alive with severe life-threatening injuries.”
Gonzalez added that a suspect has been identified and located, but not arrested and put in custody, as of Tuesday morning.
He said the investigation is still going to determine what led to this particular shooting, and once it is completed, the case will be presented to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office.
