PHOENIX (AP) - Police say that two men were wounded in an apparent road-rage shooting that led to the closure of part of a Phoenix highway.

Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say the victims were traveling on Loop 101 near Indian School Road shortly after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when the occupants of a Honda passenger car became agitated with them.

Investigators say that’s when several shots were fired from the Honda into the victims’ SUV.

According to DPS, the 26-year-old driver of the SUV was shot in the leg and the 20-year-old passenger was hit in the chest.

Both were listed in stable condition Thursday.

Authorities say they are looking for white or light-skinned Hispanic males driving a grey Honda passenger car.

The northbound lanes of Loop 101 reopened around 5:30 a.m.
