Stephan Ward was still awake at 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning, having a chat with his son. That's when he heard a strange noise coming from the house directly across the street: "I kept hearing this banging...I found out later that the neighbor across the street had shot someone, and that he'd been shot too."

Three men were welcomed inside the house at 711 Baker St. where an argument got heated. One of the three men shot the resident several times. Then, the host pulled his own firearm which he used to shoot and kill one of the men. The remaining two took off in a vehicle, according to neighbors. "One of the weapons is still outstanding so it's possible that somebody picked it up and took it with them," explains Lansing Sgt. David Ellis. "We feel it's possible that one of the subjects that left may be wounded however we can't confirm that."

The injured resident of the house made his way to his next-door neighbor's home where he had them call 911. He was rushed to the hospital where his relatives say he is doing well.

No arrests have been made yet, but police tell us with fingerprint and cell phone tracking, they are making head-way.

Police are not expected to release names of the victims until Monday.
