The Lansing Police Department responded to notifications about gunfire around 1 a.m., as mentioned in their official announcement.

For four hours, students were instructed to stay inside while hundreds of officers conducted a manhunt for the shooter over an area roughly 90 miles (145 kilometers) northwest of Detroit.
