Fans traveling to East Lansing this weekend for the Michigan State-Nebraska football game can expect to see more police patrolling along I-96.
The added police presence is in response to last month’s still unsolved shooting spree along the I-96 corridor. Two dozen cars were shot at between October 16th and 27th, along a nearly 100 mile stretch between Ingham and Oakland Counties. One person suffered a minor injury.
The last incident connected to the shooting spree occurred last Saturday.
“Certainly we want the public reassured that we’re trying to keep them safe,” says Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth, “But while doing that, if something happens we’ll have a lot of resources available to work on it.”
More than two thousand tips have come in from the public. Most of those tips have come in since the reward for information leading to an arrest was raised to $102 thousand.
