Law enforcement authorities are investigating the third highway shooting in four days in the Kansas City area.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a 47-year-old Kansas City man on a motorcycle was shot in the right hand Monday as he drove along northbound Interstate 435 at 53rd Street in Clay County.
The patrol says the shot is believed to have come from a white male with little or no hair. He was driving a newer model blue Chevrolet Equinox in an aggressive manner before the shooting.
The other shootings occurred Friday night on Interstate 35 in Miami County, KS, and early Sunday on I-435 near Missouri 210 in Kansas City.
At the I-435 near Missouri 210 shooting, a 17-year-old boy was shot in the foot early Sunday. The boy was with three friends when they saw a man they knew at a gas station. The boys said they took off down the interstate, but the man followed, pulled next to them and shot about six to eight times at the victims.
None of the injuries were life-threatening.
Police don't think any of the three shootings in the last four days were related.
