Michigan police investigate two highway shootings in less than 24 hours


An exchange of gunfire on a Detroit freeway Tuesday forced I-96 to close, less than 24 hours after a shooting on the same interstate left three dead.

A pickup truck was driving south on the highway when another vehicle pulled up beside it and began shooting. The driver of the van was run over and a passenger, who left the scene, may also have been hit.
