An overnight shooting along I-240 caused drivers to detour Wednesday morning. It happened at the Lamar exit along I-240. We are told two people were injured.
The exit was initially blocked off at 2:45 a.m. and reopened around 5:45 a.m.
Several MPD cars were at Lamar Avenue exit, along with TDOT crews, making sure drivers knew the exit ramp was closed.
We’ve reached out to MPD, but few details have been released. Two people were injured and taken to the hospital. Their conditions have not been released.
