WEST END, OH (FOX19) -

Three men were injured in a drive-by shooting on southbound Interstate 75 near Downtown Cincinnati overnight.

A witness found the victims around midnight near the Ezzard Charles Drive exit.

The men were traveling from Mount Airy to a nightclub when a suspect fired a rifle into the Nissan Altima, Cincinnati police said.  

The victims were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center.  One is listed in serious condition, Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said in Monday's Law and Public Safety Committee meeting.

No arrests were made.

A passing motorist, Tabitha Beebe, stopped to help the men, all of whom she estimated are in their early 20s. 

She said they suffered serious injuries and called 911.

"It's the craziest thing. This is not what we expected to do," she said early Monday. "I would want someone to do this for me. I wouldn't want to die. I would want someone to stop and pull over... There was a guy standing alongside a car saying 'I've been shot' so I pulled over and called 911. I got the driver's name and called his mom and told them he was going to the hospital. I asked do you know who did this to you and they said no they had no idea."

She said she was afraid someone might come back with a gun to continue shooting.

"I was just hoping and praying that everyone was all right and everything was going to be OK."

Police said they are still investigating.
