Police said four people, all in one car, were involved in the incident.

The driver of the vehicle sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and subsequently ran off the road.

Raleigh Police clarified Friday afternoon that the shots that injured the driver came from another vehicle.

No one has been arrested in the shooting.

Raleigh Police responded to a shooting call on I-40 on Thursday night.

The car was crashed on I-40 near Gorman Street and was deep in the woods, making it tough to see from the road.

The driver and another occupant were taken to WakeMed for treatment.

Two other occupants fled to the 1500 block of Main Campus Drive right around the Lonnie Poole Golf Course.

ABC11 cameras captured one of them being treated for injuries, placed on a stretcher and then being escorted by police to a waiting ambulance.

The second person was also taken to WakeMed.

The two men who ran were later linked to a triple shooting in southeast Raleigh earlier in the day.
