Cars line up bumper-to-bumper as police close a stretch of Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia

A stretch of Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia was closed for around six hours Saturday morning as police conducted a shooting investigation along the roadway.

All southbound lanes were closed between the Woodhaven Road and Academy Road exits from around 4 a.m. to 11 a.m. after officers were dispatched when a wounded man showed up to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital and said he had been shot on the highway, according the Pennsylvania State Police.

Officers' search for evidence caused an hourslong backup before lanes were finally reopened.
