Southfield man not hurt in Monday shooting

DETROIT – Police shut down part of the Lodge Freeway early Monday morning to investigate a shooting in Detroit.

Michigan State Police report that a driver traveling northbound on the Lodge (M-10) made a 911 call at about 1:30 a.m. on Monday, May 29. The driver, a 30-year-old man from Southfield, reported that his vehicle was struck by several bullets on the freeway between Linwood Street and Livernois.

The man was not hit by gunfire, police said.

Part of the Lodge was closed to traffic as police searched the freeway with K-9 units. Investigators reportedly located “multiple shell casings.” The freeway has since reopened to traffic.
