Last night a man in Kalamazoo, Michigan shot eight people at random, killing at least six of them. The shootings took place in three different locations and terrifyingly, the suspect was an Uber driver who allegedly picked up at least one fare in the middle of his five-hour massacre.
Police believe that the shooter was Jason Dalton, a 45-year-old man with no prior criminal convictions. Local news channel WOOD TV8 has confirmed that Dalton is an Uber driver. The police are now investigating a Facebook post that was allegedly made by the fiancé of one of the passengers that Dalton picked up in between the initial murder locations and the shooting at a Cracker Barrel in Texas Township.
Dalton shot and injured a woman in Richland Township and then made his way to a Kia dealership where he killed a father and son. Then the shooter killed four people and injured one in the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel, but not before picking up at least one fare and driving his passenger to a Fairfield Inn. [Update 3:04 pm: Dalton allegedly tried to pick up even more passengers after killing four people at Cracker Barrel. See below for details.]
