Police say a possible shooting that prompted them to briefly close a stretch of suburban Detroit freeway to search for evidence doesn't appear connected to shootings earlier this month.

State police reported on Twitter that the woman wasn't injured in the possible shooting along Interstate 94 near I-275 in Romulus and she drove to a state police post late Tuesday to report her car was struck by a bullet. The freeway reopened early Wednesday.

State police Lt. Michael Shaw said says in an email, however, the possible shooting may not have happened on the freeway itself.

The report comes after the apparently random shooting of four vehicles Dec. 7 along freeways in Detroit. One driver was wounded and investigators have said they believe those four shootings were linked.
