EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Authorities have identified two men fatally shot in different locations near the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing.

Police said Tuesday that 35-year-old pharmacist Michael Addo of Mason was killed Monday morning at a Rite Aid store in Lansing Township.

Shot minutes later at his East Lansing home was 27-year-old Jordan Rogers. Rogers was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

A 34-year-old man who lived next door to Rogers was arrested Monday afternoon following an hour-long standoff in connection with both shootings. Police haven’t identified him and he hasn’t been charged.

Lansing Police Chief Mike Yankowski says the drug store shooting wasn’t a robbery but investigators haven’t established a motive. The motive behind Rogers’ shooting wasn’t discussed.
