Jason Dalton told investigators that "he took people's lives."


A prosecutor says a man charged with killing six people in western Michigan has admitted to the weekend shootings.

Kalamazoo County prosecutor Jeff Getting says Jason Dalton waived his right against self-incrimination and admitted "his involvement in these incidents."

Dalton's statements to police were used to file charges of murder and attempted murder Monday, two days after six people died in random shootings in the Kalamazoo area.

Dalton appeared in court and heard the charges. He was returned to jail without bond and will get a court-appointed attorney.

The shootings occurred in a restaurant parking lot, outside an apartment building and at a car dealership lot. Two victims remain hospitalized.
