At least six people have been killed and three others injured in what is being described as a “random shooting” in the Kalamazoo area of Michigan on Saturday night, according to multiple media reports.

Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas told local Michigan station WLTZ  that four people were shot and killed at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Texas Township and a fifth was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Three others were shot at a car dealership in Kalamazoo; two of the three victims died. The two people shot to death at the car dealership were father and son. One of the victims from the restaurant is reportedly 8-years-old.

Earlier in the evening, a woman was shot multiple times at an apartment complex. She was taken to the hospital with injuries described as “non life-threatening,” CBS News reports. Police say the shootings are linked.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 50s, possibly driving a blue Chevy HHR.

A fourth shooting was reported at 12:31 a.m. ET, according to CNN affiliate WOOD TV.

UPDATE: At 1:37 a.m. E.T. the Associated Press reported that a possible suspect was in custody.
