LANSING, Mich. — An investigation is underway after 7 people were shot and a 17-year-old man was pronounced dead at the 300 block of River Front Dr, that’s according to the Lansing Police Department.

The call came in just before 3 am Monday, May 27th.

Police say that a large group of people were gathered in the area.

We’re told that the victims’ ages range from 15 to 20 years old.

No arrests have been made and it is believed to be an isolated incident.

Lansing Mayor Andy Schor gave a statement later saying:

“My thoughts to go out to the victims and their families. The fact simply remains that access to guns is too easy. These young people should not have had these guns. We take hundreds of illegal weapons off the street every year, yet continue to face these tragic incidents. We need more action by the state and federal governments to control access to guns. We will work with all of our law enforcement partners, and use all tools at our disposal, to find who is responsible for this and make sure they are held accountable. And we will aggressively hold responsible the owner of the guns that were used. Access to and willingness to use a gun is too easy and we will arrest all parties responsible. This has to stop."

This is an active investigation at the Lansing Police Department and
