RANDOM SHOOTING SPREE: 6 People KILLED at Kalamazoo Cracker Barrel and Local Car Dealership In VIOLENT RAMPAGE; Suspected Gunman Captured

A rampaging Michigan gunman turned a Kalamazoo into a killing field late Saturday as he randomly opened fire on strangers during an hours-long drive.

Suspected gunman Jason Dalton, 45, killed six people and wounded two in a rolling crime spree that spanned twelve miles across the city.

The shootings claimed the lives of a father and 18-year-old son who were browsing the brightly-lit parking lot of a Kia dealership, police said.

The gunman also fatally shot four people parked outside a Cracker Barrel restaurant. A 14-year-old girl was critically wounded, and is clinging to life at a nearby hospital.

“They had no participation in what led to their not being with us anymore,” Kalamazoo Police Chief Jeff Hadley said.

Dalton, of Kalamazoo, was pulled over Sunday after a deputy spotted his vehicle — the same one seen in surveillance footage leaving a bar’s parking lot, said Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeffrey Getting.

“He seemed even-tempered,” said Getting, describing Dalton’s night-long interview with investigators.

Detectives searched Dalton’s home near Cooper Township, about five miles north of Kalamazoo, after officers found a semi-automatic handgun in his vehicle, authorities said.

It’s unclear what motivated the suspect to target random civilians.

Police investigate the parking lot outside a Kalamazoo, Mich., Cracker Barrel restaurant early Sunday after people were shot and killed.

“We have no idea why this happened,” Hadley said. “It is extremely baffling. This is completely random, unpredictable and unprovoked. That’s the million dollar question.”

Dalton allegedly blasted his victims “dead in their tracks” from the seat of a dark blue or silver Chevrolet HHR crossover, officials said.

He has no criminal history in Michigan, authorities said.

Police meet early Sunday at Kalamazoo Valley Community College after searching for a gunman involved in multiple shootings Saturday.

“This is your worst nightmare, where you have someone driving around killing people, said Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Undersheriff Paul Matyas said after the suspect’s arrest.

The shooting spree started around 6 p.m. when Dalton critically wounded a woman walking with two children outside the Meadows Townhomes complex in Richland Township, authorities said. Neither of the children was hurt.

Matyas said it’s “lucky the children weren’t killed.”

A gap of four hours passed until Dalton opened fire at the car dealership. Fifteen minutes later, Dalton drove four miles to the Cracker Barrel parking lot, spraying the bullets that killed four people.

The suspect’s vehicle is visible parked along a street in downtown Kalamazoo, Mich., hours after a gunman killed numerous people in a shooting spree.

Initial reports said the 14-year-old girl died, citing erroneous information passed along to law enforcement agencies.

“I’m going to cross my fingers, say a prayer and hope like hell she does (survive),” Getting said.

The victims have not been identified.

  1. Appearing in the Perfection of God’s Glory:

    Breaking News Today 2-21-2016: Man Randomly Kills 7 In Michigan:
    WHAT, HOW, WHY was a mind developed within a human being brought into these actions this day in this our world to commit these killings? Truly a world that lies foursquare in evil, these heinous acts will continue.

    I mean really, today in the world everyone has quartz hanging out their ear and plasma in their faces. Controlled of mind, worshiping the image seen, detached from the real unseen power by which temporal things actually are appearing in end effects.

    Today the world is choosing between reality actual, and alter-reality fictitious. In an alter-reality, gay once meaning merry and light heartedness, has been amended in dictionaries to accommodate; disguise homosexuality i.e., “lip stick on a pig”, the number “1” definition as, attraction to same sex; gay man or lesbian?

    This is why I, as a Christian believer, refuse to surrender the usage of the word gay as originally intended for a new alter-reality perverse meme. For me the nuanced acronym LGBT in reality actual is LHBT; which categories dubious contrivances to accommodate/mask a-sexual morays.

    This is why same sex marriages have been contrived and accepted into culture of our society, with the State Media driving the image of an alter-reality delusion. It’s also the driver behind laws allowing men use women’s bathrooms with little children girls? It’s also why we’re treated at a half time show at Super Bowl glorifying cop killing, racial division, and destruction of our Republic?

    Then as to drive a stake into the very heart of our Republic, established for a moral and religion peoples, the setting President (closet Marxist/Muslim) invites traitors, hate America agenda saboteurs of usury, and cop killer promoters to White House for tea. In reality actual these all would be indicted for treason, but in an alter-reality they’re lauded as model citizens? How’d Michael Moore put it, “we are all Muslims” “#BLM”, and not to be outdone, Obama said, “99.9%” of all Muslims are law abiding citizens”?

    I mean really, the very fabric of our Nations is being torn apart and infested with all manners of depravity, excess, and vice by design from a cancerous Cloward-Pivon and Islamist, foreign and domestic, shadow Mafioso evil cabal, follow the mammon and you’ll find WHAT, HOW, WHY Satan’s seat IS IS not seen but appears openly to all. Selah

    This seeding and cultivation for many years now, is bringing in appears of effects, the fruits of lawlessness everywhere. Americans, those of the moral and religious peoples our founding fathers established the Republic of America for, Countrymen, have we reach the RUBICON? Selah

    On and on it goes… WHAT, HOW, WHY it’ll stop nobody knows???

    Too much blood is being spilled in the world today I believe a reckoning unbeknownst to the inhabitants of the earth, from power on high, holding at the four corners of the earth, full measures of recompenses to be poured out upon a fallen world.

    To conclude, believers, those having the oil for their lamps, we follow only the Lamb of God. Strengthen and encourage one another standing in the Holy Place ready and watching. For in the pouring out season, the accelerations will be accelerated, bringing about that moment where in is time no more. Selah

    We of the living have been called out of this world, be not of the world while in the world. For the brothers and sisters in Christ around the world you’ve given the full measure holding fast to their testimony in Christ Jesus our Lord, we your brethren are about to make perfect within you, that your sacrifices were not in vain, but fulfilled in the Glory of God’s appearing in us all. Selah

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen
