LANSING, MI -- The death of three people at a Lansing home early Friday morning is now believed to be a double-homicide and suicide, Lansing Police Chief Michael Yankowski said during a press conference.
The victims are Latoy Mesha Tate, 29, and 25-year-old Xazier Charles Dean. The suspect is 28-year-old Marcus Jamal Osby, Yankowski said.
An anonymous call came in at about 1:20 a.m., Oct. 28, expressing concern about the welfare of individuals at a home in the 2900 block of Truman Circle.
Police forced entry upon arrival and found all three people inside with gunshot wounds, Yankowski said.
After further investigation, it became clear the incident is domestic related, he said.
Tate and Osby have two children together, Yankowski said, although neither children were in the house at the time of the incident. Tate and Dean were living together at the home and Osby was not, he said.
"Evidence supports that (Osby) entered the residence and shot (Tate) and (Dean) and then himself," Yankowski said during the conference.
The incident remains under investigation, he said.
Any information on the deaths should be directed to Det. Sgt. Todd Johnson at 517-483-6864 or anonymously to CRIME STOPPERS at 517-483-7867.
