Taylor said the victim was driving east on the interstate when another drive fired a bullet through his passenger window.

The victim's injury is not life-threatening, Taylor said.

Captain Jack Kennedy, the commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said the VCU is taking over the case. He said although the shooting occurred near the Mercedes plant, it happened on the interstate and not at the plant.
