MSP Looking For A Maroon G6
Detroit’s West Side: Early Tuesday morning at around 6:20AM, a truck driver heading north on the M39 in his gray Freightliner was shot at by a maroon 2 door Pontiac G6.
Dispatch audio suggests the truck driver ran into trouble when he was unable to merge left and give room to the suspects G6 entering the M39 at McNichols/6 Mile. The G6 went on the shoulder and pulled behind the semi. As the driver of the semi exited the NB M39 @ 7 Mile, the suspects vehicle pulled along side him on the exit ramp, rolled down his/her window and fired on the semi 3 times, striking and entering the cab twice. The driver was uninjured. The suspects vehicle was last seen heading WB on 7 Mile. No description of the shooter was given.
Subsequent investigation by the MSP found 1 shell casing on the NB exit ramp @ 7 Mile. The ramp was closed while the MSP evidence techs/K9 investigated.
