Man taken in for questioning in connection to I-96 shootings following Wixom stakeout

WIXOM, Mich (WXYZ) - UPDATE:  43-year-old Wixom man arrested in connection with I-96 corridor shootings

Sources say a man was taken in for questioning last night in connection to the I-96 shootings.

At this time he is being called a person of interest in the case.

Members of the Task Force investigating the I-96 corridor shootings were active in one area of Wixom off Loon Lake Road last night.

Last night witnesses told 7 Action News that police and members of the FBI were all over the neighborhood, watching a house and towing a dark grey car. Sources say that the police talked to the people in the house and also took items from the home.

Later, they kept watch on the neighborhood as they followed some leads.

There have been 24 shooting incidents. The Task Force has over 2000 tips and the reward stands at $102,000.

Both marked and unmarked cars are working all of the leads and this one operation was intense in one area for several hours.

Investigators want to make sure nothing is overlooked. 

Brett Baier saw it all go down and said his daughters who are just starting to drive are a little freaked out by the whole thing.

"It's terrible and it just needs to stop, I would be relieved if they caught the guy", says Baier.
