Two shootings kept Benton Harbor officers busy early Sunday morning.

The first one happened when officers were called to a loud house party at about 1:30 a.m. on Lavette Avenue. While trying to break it up, multiple gunshots were heard about a block away.

Dispatch then heard of a man that was shot multiple times on Lavette Avenue. 22-year-old Andre Sanders was pronounced dead at Lakeland Hospital.

About two hours later, ABC 57 reports multiple shots rang out at Edgecumbe and Forest Avenue.

Officers discovered three people had been shot: two men and a woman. One of the men, 26-year-old Joseph “Jo-Jo” Tyson, died of his injuries while a 26-year-old man and 34-year-old woman are in critical condition at Lakeland Hospital.
