Police: Shooting of man on freeway linked to spree

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are linking the shooting of a motorist driving along Interstate 96 in Livingston County to a string of shootings across southeastern Michigan.

The man was taken to the hospital Saturday afternoon after being shot in the buttock by a bullet that came through the driver's-side door.

The driver was traveling eastbound on I-96, about a mile west of the Fowlerville Rd. exit.

Shots were fired at another car earlier but its two occupants weren't injured.

Shots have been fired on at least 24 cars since Oct. 16.

Most of the shootings involved cars near I-96.

No injuries were reported before Saturday, the first incident since Oct. 18.

Multiple police agencies are searching for the suspect.

There's a $12,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Anyone with information is asked to call in tips to the anonymous tip line, 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
