A man who shot three people at an office in Troy, Mich., killing one, is in custody.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Genessee County deputies chased 38-year-old Anthony LaCalamita for 30 miles at speeds reaching up to 120 miles per hour on I-75. Sheriff Robert Pickell told reporters LaCalamita didn’t respond to the deputies’ lights and sirens.

“He was driving erratically from one side of the expressway to the other,” Pickell said. “It’s by the grace of God no one else was killed in a car accident.”

Michigan State Police officers stopped LaCalamita in Saginaw County by using stop sticks to stop his 2007 silver Ford Fusion. LaCalamita was arrested without incident and was “subdued.”

Officers recovered a 12-gauge pump shotgun and three live shells. He is charged in Saginaw County with fleeing from police.

According to USA Today, LaCalamita allegedly entered the office building in the Detroit suburb around 10 a.m. this morning and fired an unknown number of shots on the second floor. Three people were hit. Two are being treated at Beaumont Hospital; the third died on the way to the hospital.

LaCalamita worked for an accounting firm in the building, and officials with the Troy Police Department said he may have been fired recently.
