SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJRT) - Michigan State Police arrested a suspect Saturday after a motorist was shot while driving on I-75 in Oakland County a day earlier.

Detectives from the Special Investigations Section served several search warrants Friday night and Saturday morning related to the shooting, which was reported just after noon on northbound I-75 near the East Holly Road interchange.

Michigan State Police say they arrested a suspect, who wasn't identified, and seized several pieces of evidence in the investigation. Police believe the shooting was not a random incident and likely was a targeted attack.

Reports on the incident will be forwarded to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office, which will decide on criminal charges against the suspect.

Michigan State Police say a man was driving northbound on the freeway around 12:10 p.m. Friday when an unknown assailant shot at his car and a bullet hit him. An ambulance rushed him to an area hospital, where he was listed in serious condition.

Police were looking for a white Audi sedan, which exited I-75 at Holly Road in Oakland County after the shooting and continued driving in an unknown direction. A description of the driver was not available Friday afternoon.

Northbound I-75 was closed in Oakland County for nearly three hours Friday while investigators gathered evidence. Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Michigan State Police Metro North Post at 248-584-5740.
