Detroit — The northbound Southfield Freeway in Detroit has reopened after being closed for hours Thursday morning as police investigated a shooting. 

At about 4:30 a.m., a male driver on the northbound freeway between Seven Mile and Eight Mile saw a white SUV swerve ahead of him. The driver backed off, but then he heard a bang.

Police have blocked off the Southfield Freeway at Eight Mile Road after a shooting.

After arriving home, the driver found a bullet hole in his vehicle, said Lt. Mike Shaw, a spokesman and commander for Michigan State police, via Twitter. State police investigate crime on Michigan's freeways.
