A Berkeley man was shot and killed on Interstate Highway 880 in San Leandro early Saturday morning as officers investigated a crash scene nearby, police said Monday.
The victim was identified today as 37-year-old Miguel Corrales-Rosales, according to police.
Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting, but said a passenger in Corrales-Rosales's own car shot him as they were parked on the right shoulder of the highway. A suspect in the case turned himself in to police Monday afternoon.
California Highway Patrol and San Leandro police officers were investigating a multi-vehicle crash reported at 12:55 a.m. near the Marina Boulevard off-ramp when they heard gunshots at 2:10 a.m., police said.
They saw a car parked on the right shoulder of the freeway just north of the crash scene and found Corrales-Rosales suffering gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Investigators identified a suspect later that night who they believe knew Corrales-Rosales and was in the car with him that night. Police obtained a warrant for his arrest and he surrendered to the CHP Monday afternoon, according to police.
He was arrested on suspicion of murder. Police have not yet identified him.
Anyone with information about this case has been asked to contact San Leandro police at 510-577-3230 or the anonymous tip line at 510-577-3278.
