Mich. shootings spree suspect ID’d, to be charged

Associated Press

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a 43-year-old man suspected in a shooting spree along a 100-mile stretch of roads in Michigan will appear in court to be charged.

An investigator says Raulie Casteel will be arraigned Wednesday in Howell, a Livingston County community 55 miles northwest of Detroit. The investigator identified the suspect on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak before the court hearing.

Casteel was arrested Monday at his home in Wixom. He’s suspected of 24 shootings, mostly at moving vehicles, in four counties beginning Oct. 16. One person was wounded.

Casteel’s mother, Lana Hunt, confirmed her son’s arrest to the Detroit Free Press and told the paper she’s worried he might be mentally ill but refuses to see a doctor.
