An investigation found that the shooting "possibly stemmed from road rage," MSP said. 

No one was injured by the gunfire. 

As of 4:30 p.m., I-94 remained closed just west of Rawsonville Rd. while troopers and detectives conducted their investigation.  

No further details about the incident were immediately released. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the shooting is asked to call the MSP Brighton Post at 810-227-1051.

This comes as State Police have reported more than a dozen shootings on Detroit-area freeways since mid-June, many of them linked to road rage. 

State Police encourage drivers to deescalate traffic disputes, do not engage in road rage, and just "let it go."
