A 43-year-old man from Wixom was arrested Monday night in connection with the shootings that have been reported along the Interstate 96 corridor in Oakland, Livingston, Ingham and Shiawassee counties.

Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelworth says the arrest was the result of information developed during the investigation over the past couple of weeks.

Members of the task force assembled to investigate the shootings arrested the suspect at his home in the 1500 block of Kings Crown in Wixom.

Investigators say evidence was taken from the house, and the suspect was driving a car matching the description of one provided by one of the victims.

Sheriff Wriggelsworth says additional information about the suspect, including his name, will not be released pending further investigation and a review of the evidence by four county prosecutors' offices.

Between October 16 and October 27, there have been 24 reported shooting incidents along I-96 and several side roads. One driver was wounded.

A $102,000 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
