Michigan State Police are investigating yet another injury-causing freeway shooting in Detroit.

This one occurred Saturday around 3 p.m. in the westbound lanes of the Davison near Joseph Campau. Authorities say the rear of the victim's car was shot, sending fragments into the back of his head and neck. He transported himself to the hospital and was unable to provide suspect information.

It's unclear whether the attack was targeted and a suspect had not been identified as of Sunday afternoon, Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw said.

As of late June, 22 freeway shootings had been reported in Detroit since the start of the year, compared with just two elsewhere in the state. There have been at least three additional Detroit freeway shootings since, two on the Lodge, and one just a week ago at I-96 and Greenfield.
