KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. — Kalamazoo Police Chief Jeff Hadley says that a suspect is in custody after six people were killed in shootings in Kalamazoo County.
Four of the victims were shot and killed in the parking lot of the Cracker Barrel restaurant in Texas Township. A fifth victim, a 14-year-old girl, was taken to the hospital with critical injuries
The other two victims, a father and son, were killed at Seelye KIA on Stadium Drive, according to Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas.
One other person was seriously injured in the shootings.
Michigan State Police Lt. Dale Hinz called the shootings at three separate locations "incomprehensible."
The first shooting happened at about about 6 p.m. at Meadows Townhomes, on the eastern edge of Kalamazoo County. A woman was shot and seriously wounded. Authorities said she is expected to survive.
A little more than four hours later, around 10:15, and 15 miles away, a father and his 18-year-old son were fatally shot while looking at cars at the Seelye KIA delaership on Stadium Drive.
Fifteen minutes after that, five people — including the teenage girl who police originally said had been killed, based on a pronouncement by medical officials — were gunned down in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel restaurant along Interstate 94.
Police said Sunday morning the injured teen remained in serious condition.
Police say the suspect, now identified as 45-year-old Jason Dalton, was arrested at about 12:40 a.m. at Ransom and Porter streets in Kalamazoo. Police said weapons were found in his vehicle.
"These are random murders," Matyas said. “This is your worst case scenario."
