East Lansing police have released photos of a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Michigan State University student last week.
The suspect is described as 20-25 years old; between 6 feet 1 inch and 6 feet 3 inches tall; and weighing about 170 pounds. At the time of the shooting Friday night, he was believed to be wearing a black hooded North Face winter jacket, tan pants and black shoes, police said.
The suspect also was believed to have “received significant facial injuries during the struggle with the victims,” police said in a release Tuesday.
The shooting was reported about 8:48 p.m. Friday at an apartment complex in the 200 block of Cedar Street, near MSU’s campus.
Officers found two students who had been shot while in their apartment: Dominique Nolff, 20, of Middleville, and a 20-year-old from Grand Haven.
Both were transported to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, where Nolff, a sophomore majoring in hospitality business, was pronounced dead at 9:23 a.m. Saturday from multiple gunshot wounds.
The other student was treated for a single gunshot wound and released.
Police said the shooting “does not appear to be a random act.” An investigation is ongoing; more information was expected to be released as it progresses.
Anyone with information is asked to call the East Lansing Police detective bureau at (517) 319-6884.
