A man accused in an October shooting spree that targeted motorists in southeastern Michigan has been charged with attempted murder.

Dozens of charges were read Friday in a court in Novi in Oakland County.

Raulie Casteel already is in jail on a $2 million bond for a shooting in Livingston County. The 43-year-old was arrested Monday at his home in Wixom.

Police told a judge Friday that bullet fragments recovered from vehicles have been directly linked to Casteel's 9mm handgun. Police also found shell casings near the windshield wiper of Casteel's Chevy Malibu.

There were two dozen shootings in four counties on or near Interstate 96 in October. One person was injured. No motive has been disclosed.
