A prosecutor has charged a man with six counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder after a series of random shootings in western Michigan.

Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting filed the charges against 45-year-old Jason Dalton, of Kalamazoo Township.

Dalton is expected to make an initial court appearance later.

Dalton was arrested on Sunday in Kalamazoo.

Police said the rampage began about 6pm on Saturday outside an apartment complex, where a woman was seriously wounded.

A little more than four hours later, a father and son were fatally shot while looking at vehicles at a car dealership.

Fifteen minutes after that, five people were shot in the car park of a Cracker Barrel restaurant.
