A preliminary investigation found that the shots were fired from a vehicle traveling north on the I-94 at 47th Street, state police said.

The shooting causes victim vehicle to veer off the road to the left and strike the concrete medial wall before coming to a rest, state police said. The man driver and his passenger, 38 and 39, were not struck by gunfire.
