PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The tire of a moving semi was shot by someone in a passing SUV on Interstate 205 in southeast Portland early Tuesday morning.

Officers responded to the highway at Division Street and contacted a truck driver who said he was in the right southbound lane when the driver's side rear tire was shot and flattened.

The driver told police a newer black SUV with tinted windows pulled up alongside him and someone inside the vehicle fired multiple rounds toward the truck.

The SUV then sped out of the area.

Officers located evidence of gunfire consistent with the truck driver's statement, according to police.

The truck driver did not see the shooter and did not have any better description of the vehicle.

Investigators said no similar incidents have been reported to police and there is no evidence to suggest this was a road rage incident.

Anyone with information about this shooting is asked to call assault detectives at 503-823-0400.
