A man was transported to a hospital Monday after he was found suffering from gunshot wounds on Interstate 80 in San Pablo, police said
San Pablo police said officers at 4:20 p.m. responded to assist the California Highway Patrol with an accident and possible shooting on westbound I-80. When officers arrived they found a man in a vehicle stopped on the shoulder of the freeway suffering from gunshot wounds, police said.
"In my 20 years at San Pablo this is the first time we've had a shooting on the freeway," said Gene Alameda with the San Pablo Police Department.
There were no other passengers in the vehicle, according to police.
The man was transported to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek. He is in stable, but critical condition, police said.
The shooting investigation temporary closed two westbound lanes of the freeway at San Pablo Dam Road, prompting the California Highway Patrol to issue a Sig-alert at 5:38 p.m. The Sig-alert was lifted at 7:22 p.m.
Police late Monday were still searching for the shooter.
No other information was immediately available.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the San Pablo Police Department's detective division at 510-215-3150 or Bay Area Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
