Police: Man, 22, shot in drive-by on SB Lodge Freeway
Detroit — A 22-year-old man was shot early Thursday morning as he drove on the southbound John C. Lodge Freeway, Michigan State Police said.
State police, who patrol Michigan's freeways, were dispatched about 1 a.m. to the southbound Lodge Freeway, Lt. Mike Shaw said via Twitter.
The victim and a passenger were driving when the driver, the 22-year-old man, was hit by gunfire from another vehicle.
After the victim was hit, he turned over the wheel to the passenger. The vehicle stopped when the occupants saw a Detroit police vehicle securing the scene of a crash, in the area of Davison and Wildemere, and they asked the police for help.
Police did not say if the incident was random or a targeted attack.
Detroit police then called Michigan State Police, who will handle the investigation. Troopers closed a portion of the southbound freeway for hours to locate the shooting scene.
Medics transported the victim to an area hospital, where he is listed in critical condition.
