A representative of the Wixom Police Department told MLive that a news release related to surveillance camera footage would likely be made available today. She said it would include still shots of a man police want to talk to regarding 24 shootings along the Interstate 96 corridor since Oct. 16.

The photo was taken at a gas station in the area of the shootings, the Detroit Free Press reported.

A police task force is investigating the spate of shootings in Ingham, Livingston, Oakland and Shiawassee counties. Most of the shootings have not occurred on the freeway itself. One person has been injured.

Police said Thursday they will increase their presence along I-96 Saturday to reassure the thousands of motorists expected to travel along Interstate 96 to Michigan State University’s home football game against Nebraska. The extra patrols will run roughly from the Livingston County line to U.S. 127, Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth said at the press conference.

Police stress that the risk to motorists is low, especially since most of the shootings have not occurred on the freeway.

Police said they have received more than 2,200 tips in the case. The FBI, ATF and Crime Stoppers are offering a $102,000 reward in the case.
