Three Men Shot in Lansing

When I was a young child we often said to one another, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Well today, all too often, words lead to violence. Over the weekend three men were shot and hospitalized in Lansing resulting from an exchange of words.

Two men were shot on Saturday about 2 p.m. in a parking lot neat the corner of Pleasant Grove and Holmes Road. They received medical attention at the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The investigation revealed that an argument led to the shooting.

The third man was shot, Saturday, in the parking lot of a Quicky Convenience Store parking lot on Waverly. The 23-year old victim was taken to a local hospital with a bullet wound to the chest. Eaton County's Under-Sheriff's investigation suggests that this incident also started as an argument.

At this point there is no evidence to suggest that the two shootings are related and no arrests have been made.

In today's society some words have negative repercussions. For three men, their words landed them in the hospital suffering from gun shot wounds. And for their assailants, their acts may result in charges ranging from Felony Assault to Attempted Murder.

Felony Assault is a felony punishable by imprisonment up to four years, and/or a fine up to $2000.00.

Attempted Murder is a felony punishable by imprisonment for life or any term of years.

If you are facing serious criminal charges, it is imperative that you retain an experienced attorney who can protect your interests and present a solid defense.
