East Lansing, Michigan — East Lansing Police released video evidence from April 25, when two officers shot 20-year-old DeAnthony VanAtten in the Meijer parking lot. At approximately 6:36 p.m. on Monday, April 25, officers with the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) were dispatched to the Meijer store at 1350 W. Lake Lansing Road in East Lansing in response to a weapons complaint. The caller indicated a male subject pulled a gun out of a car, stuck it in his pocket and went into the store. ELPD officers arrived on scene and observed a subject in the store that matched the description given by the caller.
A foot pursuit occurred, with VanAtten and officers exiting out of the store. The officers encountered VanAtten and shots were fired.
