Howell, MI (WXYZ/CNN) - There's an arrest in a case that had Michigan drivers on edge for weeks.

There were 24 shootings over two weeks in October on the Interstate 96 corridor.

Now the suspected shooter is behind bars, facing a half a dozen charges. And those could be just the beginning.

He's not likely to be going anywhere anytime soon.

The judge says 43-year-old Raulie Castell is a danger to the community. He has mental health issues that have been raised by his own family.

Castell was arrested at his family home late Monday night. He now faces six charges including assault with a dangerous weapon, discharge of a weapon from a vehicle, and felony firearms. He faces seven years in prison if convicted.

The case centers on only one incident back on October 18th on I096 in Livingston County.

[Reporter]: "One gunshot went where?"

"It went in right at the door handle to the rear driver's side door," said Sheriff Bob Bezotte.

[Reporter]: "And did it pass through the vehicle?"

"Passed through and lodged on the other side," said Bezotte.

The woman was shot at around 2:45 p.m. She called 911 from the freeway.

[911 operator]: "Livingston County 911. What is your emergency?"

"I'm calling, I was driving in my car down I-96 and I thought something hit me like, something like a really loud noise happened," said the woman.

[911 operator]: "Eastbound or Westbound?"

"Westbound. I pulled over at the Howell like Tanger Outlets exit. But there's a gunshot that went through my car. I don't know if it was somebody hunting or what it was, but..." said the woman.

More charges are expected to come in Oakland County, where 12 of the shootings occurred.

Castell is held on a $2 million bond.
