SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Authorities are investigating an attempted shooting that took place along I-91 in Springfield.

Mass. State Police spokesperson David Procopio said that around 1:20 p.m. Tuesday, troopers were notified of a ShotSpotter notification in the area of I-91 in Springfield's North End.

A short time later, a trooper saw a disabled vehicle on I-91 north, near the Exit 10 off-ramp.

"Preliminary investigation indicates that the vehicle was struck by multiple gunshots possibly fired from another vehicle as it travelled between Exits 9 and 10," Procopio explained.

The adult make driver of that car was not injured.
