Michigan Highway Sniper : Sheriff's office searches for possible highway shooter

Authorities are investigating a possible highway sniper in Michigan.

Calhoun County Sheriff Matt Saxton says they have several reports of objects, or projectiles hitting vehicles between 11-Mile and I-69 on I-94 and on I-69 between Jonesville Road and M-60 in Branch County.

Authorities say that drivers who think they’ve been shot at should not stop their cars. Instead, they should drive to a safe place and call 911.

This is similar to a case in Metro Detroit in October of 2012 when cars were shot at 23 times in Oakland, Livingston, Shiawassee and Ingham counties.

Raulie Casteel, 44, and a father of four, was convicted of terrorism and would later plead no contest and mentally ill to other charges.

He’s doing 18 to 40 years in prison. Authorities on the new case have been in contact with Wixom Police who were the first to handle the I-96 corridor shootings.

Police are asking that anyone with any information regarding a possible Michigan highway sniper contact them at 269-781-9700.
