Kalamazoo, Michigan: Six shot dead in 'random' attacks

A series of apparently random shootings has left six people dead in the Michigan town of Kalamazoo, US police said.
Four people were killed at a restaurant and two at a car dealership. Three others were injured, two critically.
The attacks are being linked to an earlier shooting at a car park, which left one woman seriously injured.
Police have taken a 45-year-old male into custody and said that the threat to the public was now over.
The man did not resist when approached by officers, and weapons were found in his car, police said.
"These are random murders," Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas said, describing the spree as his "worst nightmare".
The shootings took place on Saturday evening at three locations - outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant, a Seelye Kia car dealership and a block of flats.
Police were first called to a Kalamazoo residential building on Saturday evening where a woman was shot multiple times - reportedly in front of her children - and was taken to hospital in a serious condition
Hours later, officers were called to the car dealership where two people were shot and killed, and a third wounded, Mr Matyas said. The two killed are believed to have been father and son
The third shooting in the car park of a Cracker Barrel restaurant saw the gunman open fire on people in their cars. Four were killed and a fifth person was critically wounded, Mr Matyas said
Police are interviewing the suspect and are yet to determine a motive.
