Man released after being arrested in freeway shootings

May 29, 2019

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was arrested in connection with two shootings a day apart on Interstate 94 west of Detroit has been released without facing charges.

Michigan State Police say the 25-year-old Romulus man was arrested at his apartment Tuesday. Investigators say evidence, including witnesses’ descriptions of a vehicle, led them to the man. State police said Wednesday on Twitter , however, that he was released after “further investigation and interviews.”

The first was reported early Monday on I-94 near Interstate 275 in Romulus. A motorist reported being shot at by someone in another vehicle, and several rounds struck his car.

The second happened early Tuesday in the same area, when another motorist told police his car was fired upon by someone in a vehicle.

Police say nobody was injured.
