LANSING, Mich. — A man and a woman were found dead from apparent gunshot wounds early Saturday morning at a home in Lansing, police said.

Police found the pair shortly before 2 a.m. while responding to a report of a shooting at a home in the 600 block of Baker Street.

Police have not identified a suspect.

“This is truly a tragedy. LPD will leverage every resource and partnership it has to hold accountable any persons involved, as a community we owe this to the victims and their families,” said Lansing Police Chief Daryl Green, in a statement.

These are Lansing's seventh and eighth homicides this year. That's more than double the number of homicides the city had at this time last year, and 2020 would be a record year for homicides in Lansing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lansing Police Department at (517) 483-4600, Detective Sergeant Beth Frazier at (517) 483-4659, Crime Stoppers at (517) 483-7867, or send a private message through the Lansing Police Department Facebook page.
