Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton tells us investigators believe the two women were targeted.
“At some point in time, the defendant said to a person who was not a victim, ‘I'm not here for you, I'm not here for you,’” Leyton said. "Then fortunately 911 was called, the police arrived, one of the Grand Blanc city police officers arrived just in time to see the suspect throw something into a hedge of bushes. What she threw turned out to be the gun and we believe it's the gun used in the murders."
Tyson has no prior criminal record. The gun was legally registered to her, and she had a Concealed Pistol License.
Leyton admits this is a very unusual case.
"We also have some information that the defendant may have had mental health issues, but we're going to have to look into that further," he said.
Forty-five-year-old Johnson died at the hospital and 20-year-old Work, who was pregnant, had an emergency C-section to save her baby girl.
