Local media said early on Sunday a teen-aged girl who was shot had died, becoming the seventh fatality. “We seem to be dealing with a worst-case scenario, someone driving around shooting,” Kalamazoo County Under sheriff Paul Matyas told NBC News after the shootings. At least three people were wounded in the attacks.
The Kalamazoo Public Safety Department said a suspect fitting the description of the gunman had been apprehended without incident, citing Chief Jeff Hadley. The suspect was not identified, but media reports, citing police, said he was aged 45, from Kalamazoo.
The public safety department earlier described the gunman as a white male in his 50s who was believed to be driving a dark colored Chevy HHR SUV with chrome wheels, adding that the vehicle may have been damaged. Police said the man who was arrested was driving a black HHR and had a weapon in the vehicle.
According to local media, four people were shot dead at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Texas Township, and two more died at a Seelye Kia dealership in Kalamazoo. The teen-aged victim who later died was also shot at the restaurant.
The carnage began early Saturday evening when Matyas said police were first called to a Kalamazoo County apartment building where a woman was shot multiple times before later being listed in serious condition.
