Kalamazoo County officials say that a man who opened fire across the area on Saturday, killing six people and injuring two others, appears to have gunned down people at random during the four-hour rampage in western Michigan.
On Sunday morning, Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeffrey Getting said police identified the gunman as Jason Brian Dalton, 45, of Kalamazoo. Dalton was taken into custody hours earlier.
Getting said evidence suggests the victims killed during this spree, which terrified and locked down an area two hours west of Detroit, had no relationship with one another.
“These weren’t sudden explosions, this was done intentionally,” Getting told reporters during a briefing. “They appear to have been chosen at random because they were available.”
Authorities believe Dalton acted alone, Getting said, and the shooting spree is not being investigated as an act of terrorism. The gunfire comes more than two months after 14 people were killed in what was later deemed a terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif., which came two months after a lone gunman killed nine people at an Oregon community college.
