Part of the Lodge Freeway was shut down for hours after a shooting early Friday morning in Detroit.

It happened around 1:30 a.m.

Michigan State Police says a man was driving southbound on the Lodge near Wyoming when he heard shots. He immediately exited at Livernois , left his vehicle at the top of the ramp and ran into a neighborhood.

Police say when they located the victim, he had been shot twice and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Witnesses say it sounded like an automatic rifle was fired.
