Authorities say they have established a task force to investigate at least three related shootings involving vehicles on southeastern Michigan roadways.

The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/Xth4za ) Saturday the Michigan State Police are working with the FBI and law enforcement officials in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township. The shootings happened between 5:40 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Monday in the county.

There were no injuries.
