Shooting Victim Identified, Police Continue Search for Shooter

Posted: Updated:

 

Police say they have new evidence from yesterday's double highway shooting, but they're not saying what it is just yet.

The task force received over 30 tips last night, bringing the total to over 450 since Tuesday, October 16, the first day of the shootings. They say they have been investigating all weekend, focusing on the two to three mile stretch of crime scene from Saturday. They are also expected to meet again Monday morning on how to proceed.

Officials say they're looking into every possibility and that's why the highway was shut down for so long Saturday. They're not ruling out the possibility that he was: shooting and driving, alone or with a partner, or hiding in the woods and moving on foot.

Two vehicles were shot again, this time one man was injured Saturday afternoon, when the suspect returned to the roads. Officials have identified the man as 46-year-old Scott Arnold from Delton, who was hit through the driver's side door. Arnold says he thought his tire had blown out, not realizing he had been shot until he pulled over to a gas station. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Livingston County and released in good condition.

The task force believes the suspect could be using a semi-automatic hand-gun.

Authorities are urging people to be cautious and pay attention while driving. No new shootings happened overnight or Sunday during the day.

There have now been 25 vehicles hit.
