EAST LANSING — Seventy investigators from local and state police agencies are working to catch a man suspected of firing shots on at least 22 cars, mainly on or near 100 miles of Michigan interstate highway, authorities said Tuesday.

The shootings happened in four southeastern Michigan counties last week. The first occurred Oct. 16 and the last was reported Thursday. No injuries have been reported.

Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth told reporters after a task force meeting in East Lansing that the group's work is an example of "law enforcement at its best."

But he said the nature of the shootings makes the investigation a challenging one.
