    Shooting Investigation Shuts Down I-880 in San Lorenzo: CHP

    Interstate 880 in San Lorenzo was temporarily shut down Thursday night while the California Highway Patrol investigated a shooting on the freeway, the CHP said. (Published Thursday, May 2, 2019)

    Two people were shot at Thursday evening on northbound Interstate Highway 880 in unincorporated Alameda County, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol said.

    At about 6 p.m., the victims pulled up behind a CHP officer who was on a separate incident at northbound Highway 880 to southbound Interstate Highway 238, CHP Officer Manuel Leal said.

    The victim's vehicle had become disabled there because of bullets that hit it, Leal said.

    After officers talked to the victims, officers shut down the freeway for about 30 minutes to look for evidence and conduct an investigation.

    Leal said the suspects continued north.

    CHP officials don't have a description of the suspects or the suspect vehicle, but someone may have seen something because it was rush hour, Leal said. The victims escaped injury.

    Anyone who saw something or has information about the shooting is urged to call the CHP Hayward office at (510) 489-1500.
