UPDATE (AP) -- Authorities say a man wanted as a possible witness to a Michigan shooting spree has stepped forward and talked to investigators.

The man contacted the task force Friday night after police released photos to the news media. In a statement Saturday, the task force says the man was cooperative and helped investigators. No name was released. A message seeking further comment was left with Wixom police.

Twenty-four shootings have been reported in four counties in and near the Interstate 96 corridor, from Ingham to Oakland counties. One driver was injured. All but two of the shootings occurred two weeks ago.

Police increased patrols on I-96 for fans attending the Michigan State football game. Some high school bands traveling to Detroit for a competition avoided I-96 Saturday.

WIXOM, Mich. (WZZM) - The task force investigating the numerous shootings along the I-96 corridor in mid and eastern Michigan has released surveillance photos of awitness they want to talk toin the case.

Theperson is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s. One witness described this man as clean-shaven, but he may have changed his appearance.

The photos are from the Mobil Gas Station in Brighton, Michigan on October 27th. The vehicle may be a black 2008 - 2012 Chevrolet Malibu.

Investigators believe the suspect has spent a considerable amount of time in, or is otherwise familiar with, the areas where the shootings occurred. The suspect would have been unaccounted for at the times of the incidents and, if he did not have a legitimate reason to be in the affected areas, he may have fabricated stories regarding his activities during those time periods.
