Michigan State Police are investigating Monday’s shooting on the Lodge Freeway in Detroit that injured a motorist.
First Lt. Mike Shaw, a spokesman for the agency, said the incident was reported on the southbound lanes of M-10 at West Grand Boulevard around 4:30 p.m.
He said a 38-year-old Detroit man driving an SUV was struck three times and crashed on the freeway.
“At this point we don’t know exactly what caused it or if it was a shootout between the two sides,” Shaw said. “A motive is unknown at this time.”
Shaw said the driver was hospitalized in stable condition. “We’re hoping he’ll be a little more cooperative to help us solve the exact time of the incident and maybe even find a suspect for us.”
No other injuries were reported.
The southbound lanes were closed briefly, causing traffic to back up as authorities towed the vehicle and recovered the evidence.
Anyone who witnessed the shooting is asked to call MSP at 1-855-MICH-TIP or Michigan Crime Stoppers at 1:800 – GAP.
“It’s going to help us understand exactly what happened here,” Shaw said.
