Task force investigating reported shootings at I-94, I-69 motorists
Battle Creek — A police task force is investigating reports of shots fired at vehicles along two freeways in western Michigan.
WOOD-TV and the Battle Creek Enquirer report Thursday the first reported daylight shooting occurred Aug. 19 when a car’s side view mirror was struck on Interstate 94 near Marshall.
Other motorists have contacted authorities about similar incidents on mostly rural parts of I-94 and I-69 stretching back to July.
A slug was found in a SUV after a side window was shattered.
Detectives say they also are seeking help from authorities who dealt with a series of freeway shootings in the Detroit area. Two-dozen vehicles were struck by gunfire on and around I-96 northwest of Detroit in 2012. Raulie Casteel was convicted and is serving up to 40 years in prison.
