At least seven people were killed and two others injured in a shooting spree in Kalamazoo County, Michigan, on Saturday. The suspected gunman, who has not been named but has been described as a 45-year-old white male from Kalamazoo, is in custody, police say.

The shootings occurred at three locations, starting at an apartment complex at about 6:30 p.m., followed by a car dealership and finally a Cracker Barrel restaurant. The suspect was arrested without incident following a traffic stop at about 12:45 a.m.

The initial dispatches from Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety dispatchers to fire and medical personnel were recorded from a scanner.

Where’s the 911 from Melen, before the shootings started? He called about Dalton saying he was hitting cars, going through stop signs, and refused to let him out. Where’s that one?
