LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Police are investigating a homicide on the city's south side after a woman was shot.

Family members arrived on scene and immediately rushed passed crime scene investigators to find out what happened to their loved one. They were too shaken up to talk on camera, but Lansing Police Officers say they found a woman dead, covered in blood from an apparent gunshot wound outside an apartment complex on the 4800 block of South Pennsylvania Avenue.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting victim just after 5:40p.m.

Fox 47's Cryss Walker spoke with a neighbor who was floored to learn about the woman's death.

"She seemed like a pretty nice lady. You know she was an older lady, kept mostly to herself. I saw her in passing coming in and out of her building and I'm going in and out as well. She would wave and I would wave, you know. The only thing I really observed were the presence of the police, the ambulance, the fire department, but the reason that I came out here was because I heard the sirens," Mark Young, a neighbor of the woman, said.

Police are not releasing any more details about this on-going homicide investigation at this time, but they did say that this incident is not a threat to the public.

At this time, Police have not made an arrest in this case.
