A suspect has been charged in a deadly shooting in Lansing.

Billy Wilder was arraigned Wednesday morning on the following counts:

  • Open Murder
  • Carrying a Concealed Weapon
  • Felon in Possession of a Firearm
  • Felony Firearm

Ingham County prosecutors say Wilder shot and killed Willie Williamson on Baker Street in Lansing on February 23.

Lansing police say the men had an altercation inside a business that led to the shooting near the corner of Baker and Lyons.

Wilder was arrested in Detroit on Tuesday. He is being held without bond.

He's due back in court for a Probable Cause Conference on March 10 and a Preliminary Hearing on March 17.
