A shooter is on the loose in Michigan, targeting motorists traversing near a major thoroughfare, and State Police are worried that more shootings could occur in the days ahead.

Shootings have already occurred, and while there haven't been many major injuries, police are worried that the shooter is aiming to cause mayhem. Michigan State Police have already beefed up patrols in parts of the I-96 corridor, in hopes of finding the shooter should calls start coming in to 911.

The shooter so far has put bullets in 24 vehicles, even wounding one motorist with a shot to the buttocks while he was driving, leaving him feeling a sharp pain, only to find out he was soaking in blood.

State Police are aiming to quell concerns...

This has been going on for years, they need to make and example out of one of them when they catch them.. Just no need for this type... Or better yet send them to Iraq..

Wishing that the police get their man would say the least, he should be put on the chopping block! This is serious and needs to be dealt in the swiftest of manner. Pray they get this under control as fast as possible, of course people and Doctors will say he is ill and needs help tired of all the excuses and bleeding hearts. What if this had been a car with children very sick!!!

He's been caught, days ago. Yesterday, he stood mute at his arraignment and a not guilty plea was entered for him. He's an unemployed geologist who moved back to Michigan from Kentucky, complaining of low-flying military helicopters on his property down there. The Kentucky authorities say none of his neighbors seem to have seen them.

well, pistols vs. rifles is probably an uneven fight to start with. Hope the shooter is caught soon...

They say Detroit is way ahead of Oklahoma. They (Oklahoma) just passed a gun carrying law (Open carry) and now they say they can shoot back. In Detroit the crooks are already carrying...Not sure it would be helpful to have motorist shooting back with pistols at snipers with rifles.

Tough living up there as it was. Now the place seems to be sinking into a crime pit unimmaginable a few years ago...for a city here in the USA. Maybe we'll have to de-annex Detroit someday and build a border fence all around it. Just sayin'

Thanks for the heads-up, PD. I appreciate the fact that you put the news in the blog. My brother, the trucker, spends a lot of time in Michigan and has mentioned I-96 on occasion when we skype. Does anyone know what type of vehicle the nutcase targets or are the shootings seemingly random? I'll have to read more on this before I e-mail or skype Little Brother again.
