BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - One person was taken to the hospital after a shooting on I-75 south between Cincinnati-Dayton Road and the Union Center Boulevard Exits in West Chester Sunday, Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

A 911 call around 3:15 a.m. said an 18-year-old was shot on the highway right off the Union Center Boulevard exit.

Troopers say the victim was southbound on I-75 when a vehicle pulled alongside and fired multiple rounds into the victim’s vehicle.

The victim was struck multiple times and taken to the University of Cincinnati Health West Chester Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Only one lane was open for most of the morning, but the Ohio Department of Transportation officials say that the highway is now fully open.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact OSP at 513-932-4444.
