Suspect Arrested Following Deadly Random Shooting Spree In Michigan

Another day, another mass shooting in America.

Another day, another mass shooting in America: 6 dead in Kalamazoo County shooting rampage; suspect in custody:

Police have arrested Jason Brian Dalton in connection with three shooting incidents that killed six people and injured two more in Kalamazoo County, Michigan, prosecutor Jeff Getting said Sunday.

The prosecutor said he expects Dalton to be formally charged Monday.

There is "no reason to believe" that the Saturday evening shooting rampage is related to terrorism, Getting said. Dalton, the lone suspect, apparently picked his victims at random, the prosecutor said.

No motive has been determined yet, he said.

Authorities previously reported that seven people had been killed in the shooting incidents, but Getting said a 14-year-old girl shot at a Cracker Barrel restaurant did not die. She is "gravely injured," however, he said.

"What it looks like is we have someone just driving around, finding people and shooting them dead in their tracks," Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas told CNN affiliate WOOD-TV.

"This is your worst nightmare, when you have somebody just driving around randomly killing people."

Dalton, 45, was taken into custody without incident in downtown Kalamazoo early Sunday morning, Kalamazoo Public Safety Chief Jeff Hadley told CNN affiliate WWMT.
