ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A bullet struck a car while the driver was trying to get onto I-12 in St. Tammany Parish, and now investigators are looking for the shooter.

It happened Wednesday around 4:15 p.m. where Hwy. 190 meets with the interstate.

Deputies say the driver of a silver vehicle was traveling southbound on Hwy. 190 and was trying to enter the westbound lanes of I-12. Another vehicle was between him and the on-ramp and after getting to the on-ramp, an occupant of the silver vehicle fired a weapon at the second vehicle.

The victim continued southbound on Hwy. 190 and stopped near Fairway Dr., where he realized his vehicle had been hit by a bullet.

Investigators are trying to identify the driver of the silver vehicle. The car is described as a sedan, possibly manufactured between 2000 and 2008.

Witnesses say there was a man and woman in the car. The vehicle entered I-12 westbound immediately after the incident, according to the sheriff's office.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Jason Dammon at 985-726-7833.
