LANSING - A 24-year-old Jackson County woman died after being shot early Friday morning near an apartment complex on Long Boulevard, police said.

Officers have arrested a 28-year-old Lansing man, who they said a 911 caller identified. They believe the man to be a suspect in the fatal shooting.

Police responded at 1:40 a.m. to a report of a woman shot in the 900 block of Long Boulevard, near Autumn Ridge Townhomes & Apartments. Upon arriving, the release said, they first located the Lansing man in a field and "a firearm was secured."

Moments later, according to the release, police found the woman in a vehicle in a nearby parking lot. She died at the scene.

Officers arrested the Lansing man, but an investigation into the incident is ongoing and more information will be released later Friday, police said.

LPD Public Information Director Jordan Gulkis confirmed in an email that the homicide was a shooting.

Police said it was not a random incident; the two people knew each other.

The killing was Lansing's 15th homicide of 2022, according to data compiled by the State Journal. Twelve of the victims died by gun violence.

Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to contact the Lansing Police Department at 517-483-4600, Detective Sgt. Rick Thomas at 517-483-6847, Crime Stoppers at 517-483-7867, or to send a direct message to the Lansing Police Department's Facebook page.
