But this is new:
The gunman who drove in and around a western Michigan city randomly shooting people and killing at least six is an Uber driver.
A spokesman for the online taxi app told the Telegraph on Sunday that 45-year-old Jason Brian Dalton, who has been arrested in connection with the shooting, was one of their drivers, as details emerged that he may have picked up fares during the killing spree.
Joe Sullivan, Chief Security Office at Uber, said: “We are horrified and heartbroken at the senseless violence in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
“Our hearts and prayers are with the families of the victims of this devastating crime and those recovering from injuries. We have reached out to the police to help with their investigation in any way that we can.”
Dalton had also passed a background test, Uber’s spokesman added.
Cue all sorts of people screaming about how Uber’s background checks aren’t good enough.
But the fascinating bit is that he was picking up fares in between the shootings. Truly weird behaviour.
