Police are no longer seeking information on the identity of a potential witness from the Mobil gas station in Brighton in connection with the I-96 shooter case, according to a press release from the Wixom Police Department.
Wixom Police say the man whose photos they released Friday as a possible witness to a shooting along the Interstate 96 corridor is not believed to be linked "in any way, shape or form" to the 24 reported shootings along the I-96 corridor since October, according to the Detroit Free Press.
According to the report, the man depicted in the photos has cooperated with authorities and police now do not believe the man is connected with the shootings.
Police say a multijurisdictional task force will be continuing its investigation into the shooting incidents that have occurred between Oct. 16 and Oct. 27.
The suspect is believed to be a “clean-shaven” white male in his late twenties to early thirties, but police say it is possible he may also be changing his appearance.
Police also believe the suspect may be familiar with or has spent time in the area where the shootings took place. According to the report, the suspect may have fabricated stories to explain any unaccounted for time during which the shooting incidents occurred.
