[ARCHIVED] City of East Lansing, ELPD Release Video from April 25 Officer-Involved Shooting

Press Release

EAST LANSING, Mich. —  During a press conference on Thursday, May 5, the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) released video footage from an officer-involved shooting that took place on Monday, April 25 at the Meijer store at 1350 W. Lake Lansing Road.

The video footage released captures the events leading up to the shooting, the shooting itself and the events immediately after the shooting. The source videos include body-worn camera footage and Meijer security camera footage. Some of the video footage (faces, license plates and identifying information) has been redacted/blurred to ensure privacy.

During the press conference, brief remarks were made by East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas and East Lansing Police Chief Kim Johnson.

“We are releasing video footage of the incident here today as a part of our commitment to transparency,” said East Lansing Police Chief Kim Johnson. “Building public trust means remaining present in these challenging times, engaging in tough conversations and being as transparent as possible with our community members.”

“We want to reassure our community that we are listening, and we are committed to doing the right things in terms of process to ensure that we get the answers that are needed, make decisions accordingly and, ultimately, move forward as a community,” said East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas.

The video footage released contains explicit language and graphic visuals. Viewer discretion is strongly advised.
