Police on Wednesday had described a suspect as a white male who was wearing camouflage in footage of the early Wednesday attack, is considered armed and dangerous, the agency said in a plea for the public’s help in identifying him.
Security cameras captured footage of a man dousing the vehicles with gasoline and setting them on fire around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday outside the Sault Ste. Marie post, then shooting them with a rifle from a distance, Giannunzio said.
The attack happened in an area of the post that is easily accessible to the public, Giannunzio said Wednesday. Police had described a suspect as a white male who was wearing camouflage and was considered armed and dangerous.
“He literally just pulls into the driveway leading into the post and that’s where those four vehicles were parked,” he said.
The suspect was last seen driving away in an SUV, Giannunzio said.
Sault Ste. Marie is a city at the northeastern tip of the Upper Peninsula, about 300 miles (482 kilometers) north of Detroit.
