At least 24 shootings have been reported in four southeastern Michigan counties since Oct. 16, but until today none resulted in any injuries. Most of them have involved cars near Interstate 96.
The Livingston County sheriff told WWJ-AM a man was taken to the hospital after being shot in the hip by a bullet that came through the driver's-side door.
Sheriff's officials say the wounded man is a 46-year-old from Delton. WHMI-FM reports he was traveling from the Grand Rapids area to Detroit to watch the Tigers play the San Francisco Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.
Shots were fired at another car earlier but its two occupants weren't injured Multiple police agencies are searching for the shooter, who they say appears to be a man in his 30s.
Police said Friday that tests have determined that the same firearm was used in the string of shootings up to that point.
