ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating a fatal shooting that forced closure of a portion of a busy interstate highway.

The shooting happened around 12:30 p.m. Monday on Interstate 55 in south St. Louis. Police initially closed all southbound lanes, but they reopened within a couple of hours.

Witnesses told police that a pickup truck appeared to be trying to get away from a car carrying two people. Police say the passenger in the car fired into the pickup, which crashed. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim’s name has not been released.

No arrests have been made.

The shooting happened less than a month after another fatal shooting on I-55, when Patrick McVey was fatally show in his SUV on Nov. 9.
