A 28-year-old man was seriously injured after being shot while driving along the Jackie Robinson Parkway Saturday morning in an apparent road-rage incident.

The shooter had allegedly cut the victim off while driving westbound on the parkway near Metropolitan Avenue (exit 6) in Forest Hills at around 7:35 a.m., police said.

When the victim pulled up alongside the shooter, the men got into a dispute. The shooter then pulled out a gun and fired repeatedly before continuing westbound along the parkway toward Brooklyn.

The victim was shot in the back and the leg. He continued driving before exiting the parkway at Exit 3 in Glendale.

The victim was taken to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center in Brooklyn and is expected to recover.

The suspect was driving a white vehicle. The make of his car and license plate are unknown.

As of Monday morning, police had not made any arrests and the investigation remains ongoing.
