Michigan police say they have now established a link between four seperate shootings that occurred on I-94 and I-96 near Detroit last week. A Michigan State Police spokesperson now says that the “four shootings are one single incident.”
According to The Huffington Post, a Southfield woman’s vehicle was struck by a bullet on December 7 while driving on I-94. On Monday, the highway was closed by police as they looked for evidence. It’s unclear if anything was discovered.

There is no known relation between the victims. No other shootings occurred following the incidents on the 7th.

The Highway of Tears, which is the subject of this week’s Martinis Murder podcast, is a 450-mile stretch that cuts through dense forests in British Columbia, from Prince George to Prince Rupert. But it’s not the rugged terrain that has earned the highway its sad name. Since 1969, women and girls—most of them indigenous—have been murdered or have vanished. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police officially link 18 cases to the Highway of Tears, but The New York Times writes that relatives and activists say the total is closer to 50.
