WIXOM, Mich. (AP) - A person of interest has been taken into custody in connection with dozens of shootings across four Michigan counties that resulted in at least one injury, authorities said Tuesday.
Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth told The Associated Press that authorities executed a search warrant late Monday night in Wixom, the Detroit suburb where the shootings began last month.
"We're trying to confirm whether he's our guy or not," Wriggelsworth said.
Asked for more details on the execution of the search warrant, the sheriff said: "We'll have to see how this shakes out."
The shootings began Oct. 16 and stretched from Oakland County west to Ingham County. The targets in the 24 reported incidents were mostly cars traveling on roads near Interstate 96. Only a handful of shootings actually occurred on the interstate.
Police earlier released a sketch of a man in his late 20s or early 30s who they said drove a black car.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Police are asking anyone with information on the shootings to call 800-773-2587 or 248-624-6114.
