A man was injured in a drive-by shooting Monday morning in northwest Indiana.

The 37-year-old victim was shot near East 41st Avenue and Louisiana Street in Gary about 5 a.m., according to Gary police Lt. Dawn Westerfield.

He was taken to Methodist Hospital Northlake with a gunshot wound that is not thought to be life-threatening, she said.

Westerfield said the victim does not know who shot him or why. The man told investigators someone shot him from a silver Chevrolet Malibu.

Detectives are searching for a 2008 or 2009 Malibu that had four people inside, including a female driver.
