25 year old Tiana Carruthers was at a playground at her apartment complex in Kalamazoo County's Richland Township late Saturday afternoon when a silver SUV pulled up and waved her over. The Lansing State Journal reports that when Carruthers approached, she was shot once in the shoulder by 45 year old Jason Dalton.

Carruthers then reportedly turned and yelled for the children to run. Dalton then shot her several more times. She is reportedly in serious condition.
