ORLANDO, Fla. – A man was injured in a shootout that happened late Wednesday night on Interstate 4 in Orlando, according to police.
Investigators said the 29-year-old man appeared to have been shot by someone in another car near the Conroy Road exit near Mall at Millenia just before midnight.
Police said the man pulled over on the side of the road and fired multiple gunshots back.
Crime scene investigators were at the scene for hours and had to shut down three lanes of I-4 while investigating the shooting.
The victim was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injures.
Officers said they do not have description of the shooter and no witnesses have come forward. It’s also not clear if the victim knew the shooter.
Mike Eaton works nearby, right off of I-4, and saw the aftermath.
“I saw the police, a few, a bunch of lights and I was trying to figure what was going on,” Eaton said.
He said a shoot-out on the interstate is concerning.
“Could have gone anywhere. Stray bullets don’t have any names on them, definitely could have hit somebody,” Eaton said. “It definitely is scary. One because it’s close to my job where I work and I live very close by as well.”
