Alleged perpetrator of deadly random shootings in Detroit arrested

A man who appeared to shoot at random for about two and a half hours in Detroit, killing three people and wounding one, was arrested Sunday night after a manhunt.

Detroit Police Chief James White did not immediately release more information about the suspect or his arrest. He had said earlier that investigators believed the shootings were random because there was no apparent connection between the victims.

First, a woman in her 40s was murdered with multiple gunshots around 4:45 a.m. Sunday. As police investigated the fatal shooting, a witness reported that a 28-year-old man had been shot nearby.

A third victim, another woman in her 40s, was found nearby. She died after being shot multiple times as well.

At approximately 7:10 a.m., an elderly man reported seeing a man scanning vehicles. When he told him to move away from the cars, the gunman opened fire on the elderly man, who survived.

Detroit Police Chief and Mayor Mike Duggan on Sunday urged residents to be alert.
