The East Lansing Police Department says that according to investigators, the two shootings do not appear to be a random incident.

Suspect is a black male with average height & build. Call ELPD at 517-319-6897 with information.” MSU Police told FOX 17 News that this message was sent out as soon as they confirmed details on the shooting with ELPD, at approximately 11pm.

    Anything less than a death sentence for the shooter would be an insult. Eye for an eye. Senseless killings need to stop. Its time we start making the punishment fit the crime. Dj was my daughters boyfriend. He will be missed by all.

    This won't get national attention, not like it would if the role of shooter and victim were reversed….
    No way to blame lawful gun owners, the NRA or stand your ground laws here…

    When are we going to say enough to PC and start addressing the real issue ?

    How is it that the other victim doesn’t know the shooter? Something doesn’t add up here. Where are the cell phone records of both victims as well to find a number for the shooter? It’s not as if the shooter showed up at random. Someone needs to step up and be a man and come forward.
