Random Uber Nutbag Shoots 8 Near Kalamazoo

No one knows yet why Jason Brian Dalton, 45 went all ape shit.

As families mourn the deaths of six people in Kalamazoo County, Michigan, one question looms above all else: Why did the gunman do this?

Here's what we know and don't know about the attacks:

...Dalton was driving for Uber the night of the shootings and even picked up and dropped off passengers between attacks, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.

Matt Mellen told CNN affiliate WWMT-TV he rode in Dalton's car just before the shootings started.

"We got about a mile from my house, and he got a telephone call. After that call, he started driving erratically, running stop signs," Mellen told the station.

Uber's chief security officer told CNN that Dalton passed a background check. Police also said Dalton did not have a criminal record.

"For all intents and purposes, he was your average Joe," the public safety chief said. "This was random."

There is little that can be done for random nutbags. But I suspect we'll learn that Dalton suffered from Severe Loser Syndrome.
