Police identify Michigan splash pad shooter but there's still no word on a motive

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. - Authorities on Sunday identified the man who opened fire at a splash pad in suburban Detroit before taking his own life, but his motives remained unknown as investigators worked to determine if he left behind any hint of his plans.

Oakland County Sheriff's spokesperson Stephen Huber said the shooter was 42-year-old Michael William Nash of Shelby Township. Sheriff Mike Bouchard said Saturday evening that the gunman had no prior criminal history but apparently suffered privately from what the sheriff called ''mental health challenges.''

''It's our understanding that he was undergoing some mental health challenges, but no one that we know of was notified,'' Bouchard said during an evening news conference.
