Uncut: Police update roadway shootings investigation

More than 100 full-time investigators are working to find the suspect.

Investigators say they received more than 2,000 tips since the reward for information leading to an arrest of the shooter was raised to $102,000.

Police say approximately 1,300 tips came in after the FBI and ATF increased the reward.

Police are not ruling out the possibility that more than one person may be involved in the shootings and they are stepping up patrols for Halloween.

Despite fears that I-96 is not safe, police say only three of the reported incidents occurred there.

The task force reminded citizens to remain vigilant and reporting information to 800-SPEAK-UP.
