EAST LANSING, Mich.--- A 34-year-old man has been charged in two fatal shootings minutes apart near Michigan State University.

Ricard Taylor was arraigned via video on two counts of murder and five gun-related charges Wednesday afternoon in 54-B District Court in East Lansing.

He was not represented by an attorney at the arraignment.

Police say 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.

Taylor lived next door to Rogers and was arrested Monday afternoon following a standoff in connection with both shootings.

A preliminary examination is scheduled May 23.
