KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Police say they are still searching for the suspects who fired at least five shots at a truck traveling along northbound I-35  Saturday afternoon.

According to investigators, a brown truck was heading north on I-35 around 3:10 p.m., when bullets hit it. The driver of the truck then took the ramp for Cambridge Circle.

When officers arrived, they found a 29-year-old man with a gunshot wound on his head. That victim was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, but police have since said the man is likely to survive. Police say he had been sitting in the passenger seat. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Officers aren't releasing any suspect vehicle information yet, but they say they are looking for two Hispanic men.

The cause of the shooting is still under investigation, and police say it's unknown if this shooting was random or targeted.

Investigators say the driver is cooperating, and a few witnesses have come forward.

"If you are a witness, and you observe this and just happen to be in an incident like this, I would say protect yourself first," KCK officer Morgan Cameron said. "And try to get out of the way. and try not to be involved in it. But obviously if you can be a witness and try seeing as much as you can see, calling us and letting us know will always help us."

If you know anything call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
