DETROIT – The Michigan State Police announced Saturday afternoon that the department had made multiple arrested in connection with the shooting death of a 2-year-old boy on I-75.

2-year-old Brison Christian was killed after someone opened fire on his father’s truck on I-75. The family said they were driving home from basketball practice Thursday night when it happened. Their 9-year-old son was wounded, but is expected to be OK.

“I would’ve bet my last dollar that boy was going to be something special,” Brian Christian said of his son.

MSP announced the arrests on Twitter just after 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Further details were not revealed at the time as the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Michigan State Police at 734-287-5000.
