DETROIT (WXYZ) — Two people have been hospitalized after a shooting that closed a portion of the freeway in Detroit early Sunday morning.

According to Michigan State Police, the Detroit Regional Commuication center received a call around 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning about a single-vehicle crash on northbound Lodge near McNichols, with the caller saying they had been shot at and were hiding.

First responders found the callers vehicles had bullet holes in it. The two people in the car, the 18-year-old driver from West Bloomfield and the 19-year-old passenger from Southfield, had been shot in their arms and were hospitalized in temporary serious condition.
