ATLANTA - DeKalb County police are investigating after a man was grazed by a bullet along I-285 Saturday.
According to investigators, the victim was traveling on I-285 near the Moreland Avenue exit around 4:00 a.m. when a vehicle pulled up next to him. Someone inside of the unknown car then fired several shots into the victim's car, police say.
Police later found the victim at a gas station. The man was taken to a nearby hospital where his condition was list as stable.
An investigation continues.
This marks the eighth shooting on a Georgia freeway this year. At least five of the shootings have been fatal.
Also on Friday, an unrelated shooting along Interstate 75 was the result of a road rage incident, Clayton County police say.
Investigators believe the shooting was prompted after two vehicles tried to merge into the same lane.
The driver of a sedan got upset at the driver of a pickup truck and opened fire, police said. That bullet entered the cab of the truck through the rear window, striking the man.
Earlier this year, a man was shot while he was inside of his vehicle on I-85 near North Druid Hills. The victim, who was in his 40s, later died as a result of the January 14 shooting, police confirmed.
