Suspect arrested after killing 7 in random shootings, Michigan police say

Police in Michigan State arrested the suspect who killed at least seven people in a series of what seem to be random shootings on Saturday night, officials told.

Suspect was arrested in downtown Kalamazoo, the County’s Undersheriff Paul Matyas told.

He said the man—who hasn’t been identified yet—didn’t resist when officers approached him.

“The threat to the public is over. We now have our suspect,” Matyas added.

Michigan State Police Lt. Dale Hinz confirmed that detention of 45-year-old white male and said the shootings at three locations were “incomprehensible.”

Matyas said that five people were killed at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Texas Township, while two others were killed at Seelye Kia. All of the shootings were in parking lots.

“These are random murders,” he said.

Hinz said a 14-year-old girl died early Saturday. He also said that another victim was a 9-year-old girl. She was shot in the Cracker Barrel parking lot and is in critical condition.

Police believe the shootings are related to an earlier drive-by shooting at Meadows Townhomes, which left one woman injured.
