    The suspect
    What we know:

    Two hours after the final shooting, police found their suspect: 45-year-old Jason Brian Dalton. He was arrested without incident in downtown Kalamazoo. Police also seized a weapon from his car.

    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 Melle told CNN affiliate WWMT 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 affiliate.

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

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

    What we don't know:

    Who that phone call was from, and whether it may have played a role in the rampage.

    Should the victims' families sue Uber and the car manufacturer?
