KALAMAZOO, MI -- The man arrested after a violent weekend shooting spree appeared in court on Monday.

He was stoic.

Appearing through video feed, Jason Brian Dalton, 45, sat stone-faced as the judge read each of the 16 counts.

The 45-year-old Uber driver is charged with murder, attempted murder, and gun charges.

The judge denied Dalton bail.

Prosecutors say Dalton has been cooperative and has admitted involvement in the killing spree.

Authorities still do not have a motive. They say Dalton is non-emotional, has no prior criminal record and no history of mental health issues.

Prosecutors say Dalton, carrying a nine millimeter semi-automatic handgun, cruised around the Kalamazoo area Saturday on a mission to kill.

The terror began at an apartment complex, then a car dealership, and then a Cracker Barrel parking lot.

Dalton was arrested after almost seven hours of the first shooting.

An Uber driver, prosecutors say Dalton may have picked up and dropped off customers between the shootings.
