California Highway Patrol investigates I-580 freeway shooting

Traffic on westbound Interstate Highway 580 in Oakland was blocked for about two hours Saturday afternoon as police investigated a freeway shooting, the California Highway Patrol said.

CHP units were dispatched at 4:03 p.m. on a report that two vehicles were stopped on the freeway near Seminary Avenue, spokesman Andrew Barclay said.

One vehicle, a black Chevrolet SUV, was on the right shoulder and the other, a black Mercedes SUV, was blocking the second lane from the left, he said. Both appeared abandoned.

While investigating, officers were told that two people with gunshot wounds had arrived at a local hospital, Barclay said. The extent of their wounds was not known.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the two were connected to the freeway incident, he said.
