Lansing – Lansing police say a couple has been shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police spokesman Robert Merritt says 47-year-old Derrick Morell Smith of Lansing is believed to have chased and shot his 39-year-old wife, Adriann Lakisha Smith, before turning the gun on himself.

Merritt says officers initially dispatched on a reported domestic dispute on the city’s south side about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday found the two dead in a roadway and a gun with the bodies.
