A 67-year-old Lansing man is believed to have been shot and killed Friday night while hunting deer in Clinton County, township police said in a news release.

The death remains under investigation by police and the state Department of Natural Resources.

When police and emergency responders arrived at an area of state land near the 8500 block of E. Clark Road, they found the man unresponsive. The area is approximately three miles east of the township's downtown.

Preliminary investigation by police revealed the victim was hunting on public land while wearing orange clothing and appeared to have been shot by another person.
