Investigation Into Shooting of Patrick Lyoya Ongoing

Detectives with the Michigan State Police (MSP) Sixth District Special Investigation Section are continuing to investigate the death of Patrick Lyoya.

Detectives are taking every measure to ensure all evidence and facts are accurately collected and documented. We recognize the importance of this investigation, and we are sensitive to the need to complete it in as timely and efficient of a manner as possible. As with any investigation, gathering all the facts and documenting every piece of evidence takes time and we appreciate the patience of the community as we work to conduct a thorough and complete investigation.

Once detectives finalize their report, it will be forwarded to the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office for review. There is no timeline on when this will occur.
