CHICAGO (CBS) — Part of Interstate 57 was shut down for nearly four hours Friday morning, after several shots were fired on the expressway.
Illinois State Police said, around 1:45 a.m., troopers responded to a call of a vehicle hit by gunfire in the northbound lanes of I-57 near 119th Street.
Police found a BMW with several bullet holes, and a shot-out window.
All northbound lanes were shut down between 127th Street and 119th Street, while troopers searched the road for evidence. Police placed at least a dozen evidence markers on the pavement.
The lanes reopened by about 5:45 a.m.
