Police arrest suspect in Detroit shootings

Detroit police discovered a woman in her 40s who died from multiple gunshots at about 4:45 a.m. Sunday. While they were investigating her death, they received reports of another shooting—the second in a string of four apparently random attacks by the same gunman. After a daylong manhunt by local police, the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, authorities said they apprehended an unidentified suspect Sunday evening.

Who were the other victims? A 28-year-old man and a woman in her 40s died, and a man in his 70s was shot once but survived. Police linked all four shootings to the same gun, but they did not detect any links between the victims. They did not release any further information about the suspect.
