The shootings happened about 2:40 a.m. Sunday near East 16th Avenue.

North Kansas City police said it is unclear right now whether the men were coming from nearby Harrah's casino at the time. Investigators are still trying to determine the motive as well.

The victims told officers that they were traveling together, in separate vehicles, on southbound I-35 between Highway 210 and the Missouri River when an unknown vehicle approached them from behind.

That was when the perpetrator unloaded his weapon into both vehicles leaving the men - two 25-year-olds and one 33-year-old - with non-life-threatening injuries and struggling to get to the hospital.

All three managed to make it to the hospital in their personal vehicles, but it has left other who use their car along the stretch of highway shaken.

Heidi Ahmed works at a gas station not far from where the shooting happened. She said she is worried more with her son's safety than her own.

"It is scary because I drive that highway every day, and if I take my son with me, it is even scarier because anybody could get hurt," Ahmed said.

Michelle Noren could not hold back tears after hearing what happened. Though she didn't know anyone involved, she says the shooting gives her perspective.

"It makes me think every day that we live our life to the fullest," she said.

One lane of southbound I-35 was closed Sunday morning near East 16th Avenue investigators processed the scene for evidence.
