Uber passenger is shot multiple times while riding in the back of a car, Michigan cops say

A 34-year-old woman was shot dead while riding in the back of an Uber, Michigan authorities say.

Michigan State Police said the shooting occurred around 6 a.m. Friday, June 2 on Interstate 94. The rideshare passenger had been picked up from her home in Detroit, state police said.

For unknown reasons, a vehicle described as a “dark sedan” pulled up next to the Uber vehicle on the freeway and someone in the car fired multiple shots, according to state police.

The woman was shot multiple times and a soldier “applied a tourniquet to her leg,” state police said. She was taken to hospital, but police did not provide an update on her condition.

State police said the Uber driver was not injured in the shooting. The shooter has not been identified.

Several casings were found on the highway, which was closed as part of the investigation.

“Members of our Highway Investigation Support Team are just beginning their investigation,” Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw said in a statement. “Currently the motive for the shooting is unknown, but we hope to narrow it down as we speak with the victims.”
