EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) is investigating a possible road rage incident from this past weekend in which one individual was shot. ELPD is seeking information from the community that may lead to the assailant. 

The shooting incident occurred at 11:50 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23. ELPD was notified 14 minutes later at 12:04 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 24. The original information received by ELPD was that the incident occurred at M.A.C. and Grand River avenues. 

Upon further investigation, ELPD determined that the shooting occurred on Coolidge Road north of Saginaw Street where the individual was receiving medical treatment at the scene. The individual was transferred to Sparrow Hospital and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is a white male, in his mid- to late-20s, with long, blond hair worn in a bun with a mustache and medium-length blond beard. The suspect’s vehicle was a silver, four-door sedan, possibly Toyota, with unknown Michigan license plate. 

Community members who may have been a witness to this crime or have additional information are asked to contact ELPD Detective Jason Cotton at (517) 319-6842. Although there is no suspect at this time, ELPD believes there is no immediate threat to the public.
