Man charged with killing 6 in Michigan interrupts testimony


A judge stopped a hearing after a Michigan man accused of killing six people interrupted the testimony of one of the two people who survived the shooting rampage.

Jason Dalton raised his voice in court Friday and talked about people with "black bags."

Judge Christopher Haenicke called a recess and deputies removed Dalton from the room. Haenicke must decide if there's probable cause to send Dalton to trial on charges of murder and attempted murder.

Prosecutors say Dalton gunned down six people and wounded two others in the Kalamazoo area over several hours on Feb. 20.

Survivor Tiana Carruthers was testifying at the time of Dalton's outburst, and she began sobbing.

Police have quoted Dalton as saying a "devil figure" on Uber's app was controlling him during the shootings.

He was driving for Uber that night.
