Kalamazoo Uber Shooting Suspect Charged With 6 Counts of Murder

Alleged murderer picked up passengers in between killings

Uber driver Jason Dalton has been charged with six counts of murder, two counts of assault with intent to commit murder and eight firearms charges for his alleged role in a string of shootings in Kalamazoo, Michigan on Saturday night.

The Uber driver allegedly drove around town, gunning down random victims along the way, according to police. Dalton allegedly picked up Uber passengers in between killings.

“We got about a mile from my house, and he got a telephone call. After that call, he started driving erratically, running stop signs,” passenger Matt Mellen told WWMT in West Michigan. “We were driving through medians, driving through the lawn, speeding along and when we came to a stop, I jumped out the car and ran away.”

Mellen also told the station he was “upset because I tried contacting Uber after I had talked to the police saying that we needed to get this guy off the road.”
