LAKE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — A man says the car he was driving was shot at while he drove on Interstate 65 Friday. Now State Police are investigating.

It happened around 7 p.m. in the northbound lanes I-65—just south of the U.S. 30 exit.

Troopers were called to a car dealership in Highland for a report of a car that had been hit by gunfire.

A 19-year-old employee had picked up a car in Carmel and was driving it back to the Highland dealership.

He said he was headed north on I-65 when a silver car pulled up beside him. The employee said he made eye contact with the driver and saw two other people in the silver car. That's when he said he heard "shots" being fired.

The car had a bullet hole in the rear passenger door. A witness was able to describe the silver car as a Chevrolet Camaro with Illinois plates. The witness was unable to get the license plate number.

The employee was not injured.
