TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) - Temple Police are searching for a suspect who shot two motorcyclists on the side of the road Friday night.

At 10:57 p.m. Police officers were dispatched to a shots-fired call along the northbound lanes of I-35 just north of the massive Buc-ee’s store in the area.

Police say two motorcyclists were stopped on the side of the road when an unknown person shot at them from a vehicle.

The two victims were transported to Baylor Scott & White Hospital.

Authorities on Monday said one of the victims had been released from the hospital. The other victim remains in critical, but stable condition.

No suspects have been identified at this time and the case remains under investigation.
