We are having a series of car shootings here in Michigan. I’ve been following this on the news, because I grew up in the area where some of these shootings have occurred, I and worry for friends still there. They are calling it highway shootings, which I guess is technically correct, but the map in the second link shows that some of these have happened on the lesser Highway, 52, which is only one lane in each direction.

I don’t like that they are comparing this to the DC Sniper. So far, there is really no comparison. Thankfully, no one has been seriously injured.
The driver is suspected to be a white male, and is shooting out the driver’s side window as he is driving.

I am wondering also if there are two cars involved, maybe owned by the same person, because a caviler and a mustang really don’t look much alike.

Sure hope he is caught soon, before someone does get hurt.

Thats horrible, I hope they are caught...

It reminds me of the DC Sniper we had around my way, he and Lee Malvo waited for a white box truck to be near by before he struck people down...My friend was a truck driver of a white box truck and he said he was questioned on more then one occasion......

Although it appears this person is shooting from their car, they are truly lucky I would of suspected some serious accidents and casualties, I imagine this person must think they are living in Grand Theft Auto.....

I could understand someone making the mistake on a highway, but these are older models. Any more details on age range of the vehicles?

Police believe the suspect may have been driving a 1998 Oldsmobile Alero or 98 Toyota Camry

This was released yesterday. Includes a sketch and another car model?

I find this whole story makes me ask more questions. I wonder if this person is just trying to scare people? Is he just deranged?
NOT that I want anyone hurt, because I don't! But you would think that if he was out to kill someone, the way he is doing this, shooting out the window as he drives by them, he could have killed someone by now.
I just can't believe this has been going on for this long in this area.

He's going to escalate. His first few shots were 'testing the waters' shots to see how much reaction it would get. He will escalate from cars to humans real soon, I predict.

What is it with people recently? what with the nutty van (truck) driver who went on a lets see how many people I can run over rampage in Cardiff and now this, it just leaves me wondering what the heck is happening to society as a whole.

Just wanted to add, that I hope the person is caught before this gets any further out of hand.

Well, after over a week of no shootings, he's at it again. This time, a bullet came through a door and apparently hit a man in the leg.

The reward is up to 12,000.00 and it looks like they may have found new evidence.

I hope they get him soon!

That's great to hear!
I realize that the police more than likely have more info that has not been released, but it's just scary that it has been going on this long.

I thought it would be a one time thing, seems that it's getting worse though. What could possibly motivate someone to go on such a rampage is really beyond me, although, more and more people are being put under tremendous stresses in their lives. Remember the movie "Falling down"?

I'll be watching this thread, thanks

I have my own theory on the various shooting incidents happening all the time. It could be linked to antidepressants and the pharmaceutical industry is covering it up. I found that site yesterday and I also read about it in a Serge Monast book where he talks about this. www.ssristories.com...

the shootings are nuts, but what i dont like is them stopping all cars that fit the description. black 4 door sedans. it seems that after 2 weeks they would have better leads. just watched the local news a bit ago, and the anchor woman said , "you should be scared". so after they check all the cars that fit the description, are they going to stop all white males?. i am not trying to down play the shootings, but with the eye witness accounts and descriptions, all they know is that its a white male in a black sedan. no cameras captured any thing? all the gas stations around the on/off ramps capture video.

I'm not sure about the ones on 96, but I can tell you that the area he is driving on 52 is basically farm country. Very few if any gas stations. The only stop lights are in the few small towns like Perry and I don't think he is going that far north.

So, really, I have a feeling that he is picking these areas for that very reason. Super rural.

the last shooting was on 23, considered brighton. now they are not sure if hes firing from vehicle or side of the road.? the sketch of him was pretty good, someone should have recognized him by now. but he may not be a local i guess.

Saying now that one not related. Not a shooting, probably a stone.
I would imagine they will get more of these, with everyone being on edge.

I like deer hunting, this guy seams to like fear hunting. It's bad enough to have to worry about all the drunk drivers, crazy drivers, and texters on the road let alone someone randomly shooting at you on the road.

We had to run part of 96 to get to where we were dropping off the load we dropped yesterday, then I found out that's where this has been happening. My first thought was "Oh. Yay."

more than one shooter? news just said they linked 2 incidents to same gun, oakland and ingham county. 4 counties are involved. they also stopped a man in a 4 door black cavalier, not involved in shootings, but arrested on another warrant. this is where i have a problem. even though the man had a warrant out for his arrest, if not for the profiling of a black 4 door sedan, he would not have been pulled over.

Usually these guys are caught sooner rather than later. Its only a matter of time before someone gets a full or partial plate number.

If its a young guy he will be doing it because he is an anti-social a-hole.

If its an older guy it will be because he's nuts.
