The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department tells FOX 17 that Demetrius Viney has been arrested on a charge of being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm.  He has not been charged with killing Lamb, but investigators say they believe that Viney was at the scene and did have a gun at the time.  Viney is being held in the Ottawa County Jail.

Detectives said at least eight rounds were fired from two separate guns. They're working to find out who shot Lamb.

Captain Mark Bennett said, "It's as simple but yet as complicated as putting together the facts. And in this case it's been complicated by reluctant witnesses."

He added, "People who have out and out been dishonest, and that's evident by some of the charges that we've levied here. We'll work through it but that is the complication in this particular matter."

One other person, Adam Young, has been arrested for lying to police in the investigation and another was arrested on outstanding warrants after showing up later to an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
