HARRISON TOWNSHIP — On Aug. 28, Michigan State Police reported that gunshots were fired on eastbound Interstate 94, near Metropolitan Parkway, in Harrison Township. The situation was still under investigation at press time.

In a series of tweets provided by the MSP’s Metro Detroit account, it was stated that the shooting was believed to have occurred between Harper and Little Mack avenues. Eastbound I-94 at Little Mack was temporarily closed, but it later reopened that day.

“The sole 911 caller (witness only, not involved) reported a blue car and possibly a black car involved in some type of road rage incident,” the MSP tweeted. “The witness then observed an occupant of the blue car reach out of their vehicle with a gun in their hand and fire at the black car.”

The black vehicle then reportedly exited the freeway.

“A check with other area agencies and hospitals did not reveal any victims, and there were no additional 911 calls from victims,” another tweet stated. “I-94 eastbound was closed while K-9s conducted an article search from Little Mack to Harper.”

No evidence was located by authorities. Anyone with information can call (248) 584-5740.
