Jason Dalton pleaded guilty to six counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and eight counts of felony use of a firearm for the 2016 shooting spree in Kalamazoo. The charges carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole.

The 48-year-old told the judge Monday he wanted to plead guilty, avoiding a weekslong trial.

“I’ve wanted to do this for quite a while,” Dalton told a judge.

Dalton admitted to shooting eight strangers in three separate locations in February 2016 while he was working as an Uber driver, picking up and dropping off customers around Kalamazoo.

Dalton told police a “devil figure” had possessed him, forcing him to kill.

He dropped his insanity defense after being found competent to stand trial.
