Several hundred people gathered on Sunday in the US state of Michigan to remember the victims of the shooting rampage on Sunday.

Police say Jason Dalton, a 45-year-old night time Uber driver, opened fire at random in three locations in the city of Kalamazoo on Saturday evening. Six people were killed, while two were wounded.

Police say Dalton may have even driven Uber customers on the night of the shootings.

Robin Buchler is the superintendent of a local school district that lost a student to the shootings. She says the events deeply affected her community.

"There's an underlying feeling of fear, and there's kids who don't want to go outside and are just really fearful because it was just so unexpected and there's no reasoning or logic to it. It was a random thing and are they next and this is in our town."

The suspect was arrested on Sunday and expected to be arraigned on Monday local time. Police say he has no known criminal record.

Saturday's events have renewed interest in how Uber vets its drivers.
