I-96 Shooter Convicted On All Charges
The man who admitted to opening fire on random cars along I-96 over a period of several weeks in the fall of 2012 has been found guilty on charges of terrorism, assault and more.
Raulie Casteel, 44, of Wixom told jurors that he felt motorists that he fired at were part of a government conspiracy against him. He told the courtroom that he felt fear and anxiety "and shot."
Casteel shot at vehicles along the I-96 corridor primarily in Livingston county, but his spree did enter Shiawassee county at one point. He responded to questioning by his attorney, saying that he never intended to hurt or terrorize any of the drivers he shot at.
A jury found Casteel guilty on Wednesday. He faces life in prison.
