DETROIT – Northbound I-75 is back open to traffic at Schaefer Highway after Michigan State Police closed it early Monday morning to investigate a shooting.

State police said a man said he was shot on northbound I-75 between Schaefer Highway and Springwells. He told police a dark pickup truck shot him from the passenger side of the truck while he was in the left lane.

The northbound side of the interstate closed just before 5 a.m. Monday but has since reopened to traffic.

Anyone who may have information on this shooting needs to contract Michigan State Police at 734-287-5000.
