Authorities say a man wanted as a possible witness to a Michigan shooting spree has stepped forward and talked to investigators.

The man contacted the task force Friday night after police released photos to the news media. In a statement Saturday, the task force says the man was cooperative and helped investigators. No name was released. A message seeking further comment was left with Wixom police.

Twenty-four shootings have been reported in four counties in and near the Interstate 96 corridor, from Ingham to Oakland counties. One driver was injured. All but two of the shootings occurred two weeks ago.

Police increased patrols on I-96 for fans attending the Michigan State football game. Some high school bands traveling to Detroit for a competition avoided I-96 Saturday.
