DETROIT (WWJ) - A man is fighting for his life after apparently being shot while driving along a Detroit freeway.

Police say the shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday after the victim left a bar with a friend and was traveling eastbound on I-94 near Van Dyke. 

As the car was traveling on the freeway, the pair heard a pop and the driver felt pain. He exited the freeway and the passenger took over, driving to Detroit Receiving Hospital. The victim was rushed into surgery and last reported in critical condition.

Eastbound I-94 was closed briefly while detectives attempted to locate any evidence, but has since reopened to traffic. 

An investigation is ongoing.
