(WLNS) – Eaton County Sheriff’s Office detectives are still investigating a shooting that took place last night near the Lansing Mall.

6 News is told a 28-year-old man was taken to a local hospital with gunshot wounds he received in the 8:30 p.m. shooting. His identity has not been released.

Witnesses told deputies that a male suspect driving a red or maroon SUV, perhaps an older model Ford Explorer, was last seen near Arden and Willow Highway.

An initial investigation indicates that the shooting is a drug-related incident and was not random.
