The I-96 shooter has been charged with multiple felonies. The shooter was identified as Raulie Casteel, 43, of Wixom, near Oakland County, Michigan.

Casteel was arraigned in Livingston County Wednesday. A felony complaint was filed by a woman who said she was shot as she drove on I-96.

Casteel entered a not guilty plea, his next court date is a preliminary exam on November 14, 2012.

In a news conference today, police said people can rest a little easier knowing that the suspect has been arrested.

Casteel was calm and showed little emotion in court Wednesday, as charges were read against him. He was charged for one of the two dozen shooting cases he’s suspected of committing.

Police say additional charges including federal charges will soon follow.

“We all want our citizens to be able to go about their daily lives without fear that has gripped the I-96 and M-52 corridor areas for the past month. It is my wish that citizens will rest easier tonight,” said David McCain, of ATF.

Casteel is currently being held on a $2 million dollar bond.
