Lansing Police made an arrest in a New Year's shooting that left a 16-year-old girl critically injured.

Police reported Monday that they arrested 20-year-old Philip Desha Hicks for the shooting.

On January 1, 2016, at approximately 1:30 a.m. police were called to the 5900 block of South Waverly Road.

The 16-year-old was inside an apartment suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators say they believe Hicks had got into an argument with several people at the apartment, and as he was leaving fired several rounds from a gun into the apartment. They say Hicks then left the area.
