|Suspect Wanted for Lansing Homicide Arrested in Detroit|
Lansing, MI -
A suspect wanted in
connection with a 2017 homicide in Lansing, Michigan, was arrested by a
joint law enforcement fugitive task force Tuesday afternoon in Detroit,
The suspect, Dequaries Jackson, 22, is charged with homicide and parole violations. Jackson is accused of fatally shooting a man in the 100 block of Shepard St. in Lansing in the early morning hours of April 1.
The Lansing Area Fugitive Task Force began assisting the Lansing Police Department in the investigation soon after the homicide occurred. The investigation eventually led authorities to believe Jackson had fled the Lansing area and was with an associate in the Detroit area.
On April 4, task force members, with the assistance of the Marshals Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team task force, conducted surveillance at a residence in River Rouge. After several hours, it was confirmed Jackson was inside the residence. The task forces made contact at the residence and Jackson was arrested inside without incident.
Jackson is being held at the Lansing Police Department Detention Facility in Lansing, Michigan. He was expected to appear in court for arraignment in Ingham County earlier this morning.
The Lansing Area Fugitive Task Force is comprised of officers from the Michigan Department of Corrections, Ingham County Sheriff’s Department, the Michigan State University Police Department, state troopers from the Michigan State Police 1st District, and Deputy U.S. Marshals.
