Update on Kalamazoo Shooter

Rick Pluta

From Michigan Public Radio Network Capitol Bureau Chief Rick Pluta:

The suspect in a mass shooting over the weekend in Kalamazoo is expected to be arraigned today. Authorities believe Jason Brian Dalton is responsible for at least six deaths. But there is no motive that’s been released at this point. Dalton’s neighbors in rural Cooper Township outside Kalamazoo say they’re surprised. Sally Pardo lives across the street from the Dalton family. She says, “We sure wouldn’t have suspected anything. We were shocked. Absolutely shocked.” 

Dalton is married with two children. Neighbors say his one passion seemed to be working on cars.
