KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police in Kansas City have arrested a man believed to be responsible for a series of shootings on highways throughout the city and surrounding region in recent weeks.

“Highway shooter suspect in custody,” Police Chief Darryl Forté announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

The Kansas City Star reports police raided a residence in Grandview and made the arrest. They towed away a vehicle with an Illinois license plate. Forté later said he could not release the man’s name or more details but said he wanted to make the arrest known. He said no charges have been filed and an investigation continues.

Three people were injured in the shootings that began March 8. Authorities believe 12 shootings are related, mostly in Kansas City but some in surrounding communities.
