PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP (AP) - A man accused of firing shots at motorists along a highway near Ann Arbor has been charged with attempted murder.

Elmore Ray was charged Thursday with four counts of assault with intent to murder, weapons and other charges.

The 28-year-old was arraigned, and bond was set at $20,000. Authorities couldn’t immediately say if he has a lawyer.

Police in Washtenaw County’s Pittsfield Township responded early Wednesday to a wooded area near U.S. 23 after a 911 caller reported a man dressed in a black trench coat was standing near a bridge and shooting at traffic.

Police say they spotted Ray walking nearby and took him into custody. They tracked his footprints in the snow and found a sawed-off shotgun.

No injuries were reported, and police say no vehicles were struck.
