A Michigan Uber driver accused of killing six people and injuring two others in an alleged shooting spree this weekend told investigators that “he took people’s lives,” officials said today at a court hearing that the suspect did not attend.

Jason Dalton waived his right against self-incrimination before making the statement to authorities, said Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting.

Dalton, 45, was charged with six counts of murder, two counts of assault with intent to commit murder and eight charges of using a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to Kalamazoo County prosecuting attorney Jeff Getting.

Dalton’s statements were used to file charges of murder and attempted murder Monday, two days after the rampage in the Kalamazoo area.

Uber has not said how long Dalton drove for the app-based service, and the company did not immediately answer questions from the Daily News.

The company’s screening process has long been scrutinized, with passengers and authorities accusing the process of being incomplete or insufficient.

Uber said in a statement it is “horrified and heartbroken” by the bloodshed and has “reached out to the police to help with their investigation in any way that we can.”

 Dalton’s Facebook page indicates he was a former high school wrestler, has been married for 20 years and enjoys refurbishing classic cars. On Monday, his family vowed to help authorities determine a motive for the attack.

“This type of violence has no place in our society, and we express our love and support for everyone involved,” the statement said. “We intend to cooperate in every way that we can to help determine why and how this occurred.”
