[SAN FRANCISCO] Uber said on Monday it would not be changing the way it screened its drivers following the fatal weekend shooting rampage by a Michigan driver for the car-riding service.

The company also said that the alleged suspect, Jason Dalton, had received "very favorable" feedback on the app from previous riders.

"There were no red flags, if you will, that we could anticipate something like this," said Uber's chief security officer, Joe Sullivan.
