Police: Potential witness in I-96 shootings contacts task force
The man - who remains publicly unidentified - was sought after task force investigators obtained his image from a Mobil gas station in Brighton. The photos were taken on Oct. 27, the day that two of the 24 freeway shootings took place.
According to a news release: "He was cooperative and assisted the task force with their investigation. As a result, the task force is no longer seeking information on the identity of this individual."
Meanwhile, police stepped up patrols on I-96 on Saturday, due to the Michigan State University football team's game against Nebraska in East Lansing. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
