Eminem protege Obie Trice was shot early Saturday while driving on a city highway, Detroit police said. Someone in another car shot through the back window of 28-year-old Trice's vehicle as he drove along the Lodge Freeway around 1:10 a.m., said Michigan State Police Sgt. Mario Gonzales.

The Detroit native managed to continue driving and got off the freeway in the suburb of Southfield, where his girlfriend, also in the vehicle, flagged down police, Gonzales said. The girlfriend wasn't wounded.

Police didn't release where the bullet struck Trice. He was taken to Providence Hospital, where he was treated and released, according to a hospital spokesperson.

There were no suspects in the shooting, which was under investigation by state police detectives, Gonzales said.

Trice is signed to Eminem's Shady Records and had a small part in the Eminem-starring film "8 Mile."
