A 22-year-old man with a concealed pistol license has shot and killed another man who witnesses say was pointing a handgun at motorists and firing into the air while standing in the middle of a roadway.

The shooting occurred about 8:30 a.m. Monday on Saginaw Highway in Delta Township, northwest of Detroit.

The Eaton County sheriff’s office says multiple reports of the gunman were received prior to the shooting. Deputies arrived to find a 26-year-old Grand Rapids-area man on the ground and a handgun alongside him.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. Sheriff Tom Reich says the 22-year-old fired his gun from his vehicle, striking the 26-year-old.
