The 26-year-old man was shot and taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, police said.

The suspect drove off and exited the expressway, police said.

The outbound lanes of I-94 were closed for several hours after the shooting for the investigation, but had reopened by 9 a.m.

No one was in custody as of late Thursday morning.
