Man Charged With Shooting At Cars Faces Prison

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A man who authorities say fired shots at motorists along a highway near Ann Arbor is expected to face at least seven years in prison under a plea agreement.

The Ann Arbor News reports 28-year-old Elmore Ray pleaded guilty but mentally ill to charges including assault with intent to murder and possession of a short-barreled shotgun.

Sentencing is scheduled Nov. 21.

Police in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township responded Feb. 27 to a wooded area near U.S. 23 after a 911 caller reported a man dressed in a black trench coat was standing near a bridge and shooting at traffic. Police say they spotted Ray walking nearby.

They tracked his footprints in the snow and found a sawed-off shotgun. No injuries were reported, and police say no vehicles were struck.
