MILWAUKEE (AP) — Law enforcement officers are investigating the third shooting along a Milwaukee interstate in less than two weeks.

The latest shooting happened Sunday about 8 p.m. and closed the southbound lanes of Interstate 43 as sheriff's deputies searched for evidence. No injuries were reported.

On Oct. 16, a man told investigators a driver cut him off on I-43 near downtown and when he gestured to the driver, the man fired at his vehicle, striking it twice. The victim was not hurt.

A 19-year-old driver was shot on I-43 on the city's northside Oct. 14. He was able to exit the interstate and drive to a McDonald's where an ambulance took him to the hospital.

It was not immediately known whether the incidents were connected.
