Standoff puts LCC students on alert
By Robin Morales
City of Lansing Police responded to a domestic-violence situation around 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11 near the corner of West Lapeer Street and Seymour Ave.
LCC students received emergency alerts by phone and email to avoid the area, located just a couple of blocks west of LCC’s main campus.
“It initially started out as a domestic violence call,” said LCC Director of Public Relations Marilyn Twine. “It became a standoff situation and they updated us when the person had been taken into custody.”
Twine said LCC police did not participate in the situation.
“(Lansing Police) used our parking lot to set up some operations, but other than that LCC was not involved,” she said.
Students were informed that the situation had been rectified at 9:30 a.m. The identity of those involved had not been disclosed as of Sept. 11 at noon, Twine said.
