Over the course of about 2 1/2 hours on Sunday morning in Detroit, a man who appeared to be shooting at individuals at random shot four people, three of whom died, according to authorities.

With assistance from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, police managed to apprehend the unidentified suspect Sunday evening following an extensive manhunt.

Police found the culprit thanks tips, according to Detroit Police Chief James White, who did not provide any other details.

“I want to express my gratitude to the dedicated DPD officers who risk their lives every day. Additionally, a heartfelt thank you to all of our law enforcement partners, the department wrote on its Facebook page late Sunday.

According to White, investigators believe there is only one shooter after connecting all four shootings to a single gun. He said that the victims had no known link, pointing out that one was shot while walking a dog and the other while waiting for a bus.

Around 4:45 on Sunday morning, he claimed, cops found a woman in her 40s who had been shot many times. A witness told police that a 28-year-old guy had been shot numerous times nearby as they were looking into the fatal shooting, White said.

Around 6:50 a.m., a woman in her 40s who was the third victim was discovered nearby. Police claimed she was shot many times before she passed away.

An elderly guy reported seeing a man looking inside cars at 7:10 in the morning. The shooter fired at the elderly guy after being told by him to leave the automobiles, who was shot once but survived, according to the police.
