(WXYZ) — Michigan State Police are investigating a reported freeway shooting.

MSP says the victim was traveling northbound on the Lodge near Wyoming around 4:50 a.m. when he swerved and swiped the driver’s door of a Chrysler 200 that was blocking the freeway from a crash.

Police say the victim got out to check on the people in the Chrysler when an altercation took place between the victim and the driver of the Chrysler.

Police say a passenger of the Chrysler then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victim, threatening to end his life.

According to police, the victim ran back to his vehicle when he reportedly heard two shots — he then drove home and called police.

Troopers closed the freeway this morning to look for evidence. It has since been reopened.

No injuries were reported.
