A motorist was shot in the calf Tuesday afternoon while traveling in a car near the Dowling Avenue exit on Interstate-94, a police spokeswoman said.
Sgt. Catherine Michal said in a text message that the State Patrol was investigating the incident. Michal said that the victim was driving eastbound on the highway, but had no further details on what prompted the shooting, which occured about 2:20 p.m.
The victim, whose name and age weren’t released, was taken to North Memorial Medical Center with two non-critical injuries, including one to his calf, according to police and scanner reports. Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a gray Saturn, which fled eastbound on 94.
A short time later, photos of the victim's vehicle, a newer model Chevrolet Camaro, sprang up on social media, showing the driver’s side door that was riddled with bullet holes. The vehicle had pulled over near the West Broadway Avenue off-ramp.
The incident followed a shooting shortly after 2 a.m. Tuesday in which a 25-year-old man was shot in the right bicep, police said.
