October 18, 2017

PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police are investigating a shooting in which a man driving on Interstate 17 was shot and wounded in the leg by a person known to the victim.

Sgt. Jonathan Howard says the suspect in the Wednesday morning incident fled the area and hasn’t been located.

Howard says the victim’s wound isn’t life-threatening.

No identities were released.

Howard says the incident has no connection to a 2015 series of freeway shootings in the Phoenix area. A man was arrested and charged in that case but the case later was dismissed.
