    At least one person was taken to a hospital after they were discovered in a vehicle on northbound U.S. Highway 101 on Monday night unresponsive and suffering from at least one gunshot wound, according to the California Highway Patrol.

    A vehicle was reported blocking at least one lane of the freeway just south of Tully Road around 9:06 p.m. Monday, according to CHP Sgt. Robert Nacke. Officers arrived on the scene and discovered the driver of a vehicle unresponsive, having appeared to have been in a fight and having been shot at some point, Nacke said.

    It appeared the driver wasn't shot on the freeway, Nacke said, but was possibly shot at another location and attempted to drive to a hospital before becoming unresponsive while driving.

    The driver was transported to a hospital, according to Nacke, but an update on their condition and the severity of their injuries was not available as of 4:45 a.m.

    The CHP blocked multiple lanes of the freeway for around six hours as they investigated.

    No further information is immediately available.
