    MI - Six Dead, 2 Injured in Kalamazoo Shooting Rampage, 20 Feb 2016

    Michigan State Police say they have a “strong suspect” in custody in connection to a series of apparently random shootings that have killed at least seven people, including a 8-year-old girl.

    Police said a 45-year-old man from Kalamazoo is in custody and being questioned.

    Chief Jeff Hadley with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety said there is no longer a danger or threat to the community.

    Investigators found no links between Dalton and the victims. Getting said the only thing that connected the three shooting scenes was the shooter.

    "There's this sense of loss, this anger, fear, and then you put on top of that – how do you tell the families of these victims they weren't targeted for any reason other than they were there to be targeted? They were shot multiple times, multiple, I mean nine, 10, 11 shell casings at these scenes. This is awful."

    Getting said Dalton, who will be arraigned Monday afternoon, will likely be charged with six counts of murder, with two counts of assault with attempt to commit murder, and six counts of felony with a firearm. “And then we’ll see from there,” he said.

    I would like to know more about the victims before I can agree that they weren't targeted for any other reason than being there.

    Oh, I am happy he didn't have more victims, but he was on a 6 hour rampage. He had to pass numerous other people. What made him target these specific people? And why did he not target the man in his car?

    We know age and gender didn't play a role. And it appears the two shot at the car lot were father/son and I would assume the group in the car at Cracker Barrel were family, the woman he shot was with her children... was he targeting families?

    I think he just shot whoever was around after he dropped off his fares. Totally random.

    KALAMAZOO, Mich. -
    A gunman believed to have killed at least six people in Kalamazoo County is in custody.

    The shooter chose random victims in the parking lots of a western Michigan apartment complex, car dealership and restaurant, killing six people during a nearly five-hour rampage and leaving a 14-year-old girl in critical condition, authorities said. Another person is seriously injured.

    Jason Brian Dalton, 45, of Kalamazoo County, was arrested early Sunday in downtown Kalamazoo following a massive manhunt after the shootings began early Saturday evening, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Chief Jeff Hadley said...

    This is insane. Not 10 minutes ago I was considering going to visit my son and his girl friend for a nice Sunday afternoon, good food, a few drinks. Thing is, after the few drinks LE might frown on my driving home. I was actually considering doing the "Uber" thing. I'd had a few doubts/misgivings before, but now I will never go that route.

    A senior at Mattawan High School, [Tyler Daniel] Smith, 17, was among six people shot and killed during a Jason Dalton's Saturday night shooting spree in Kalamazoo.

    His father, Richard Eugene Smith, 53, was also among those killed...

    Police say the Smith and his father were looking at cars at around 10 p.m. Saturday in a lot of the Seelye Automotive Group dealership on Stadium Drive in Kalamazoo when they were shot at random by Dalton.

    So of the 6 people said to be killed we have:
    1. a 8-year-old girl.
    2. Mary Lou Nye, 62, of Baroda
    3. Mary Jo Nye, 60, of Battle Creek
    4. Dorothy Brown, 74, of Battle Creek
    5. Barbara Hawthorne, 68, of Battle Creek
    6. [Tyler Daniel] Smith, 17,
    7. Richard Eugene Smith, 53

    Hmm... Something doesn't add up. What about this 8 year old girl? (discussed in my first post).

    I think that may have been a rumor.

    This is horrible. Who does this? I feel so badly for all those that lost loved ones during this "person's" rampage. Senseless. Prayers to the young girl that is in critical condition and hope she pulls through. Prayers sent.
