One person died and two others were injured Tuesday night after they were shot by another passing vehicle on Interstate 110 near downtown Baton Rouge, according to Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. 

The three victims arrived at the hospital after the shooting, and within hours one of them — 25-year-old Eric Davis — died, Coppola said. 

The other two victims, a 17-year-old male and 23-year-old male, have since been released from the hospital, Coppola said Wednesday morning.

The three men were driving northbound on Interstate 110 near Government Street about 9:20 p.m. Tuesday when a passing vehicle opened fire on them, Coppola said. He said there are no known suspects or motives at this time.

This is the second interstate shooting in Baton Rouge in recent months that proved fatal. In November, 22-year-old Ketron McDonald, of Carencro, was driving on Interstate 10 near Perkins Road when someone from a passing vehicle shot into his car, causing him to crash, then police said.

No one has been arrested in that shooting.

Coppola asked anyone with information on Tuesday's shooting to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at (225) 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.

More information to come.
