Three people were injured, including a 2-year-old who was hit by flying glass, in yet another shooting on Interstate 80 in the East Bay Monday night, authorities said.
The shooting was reported at 7 p.m. on eastbound I-80 near Richmond Parkway, CHP said.
Responding officers found a vehicle had pulled off of the freeway after the shooting. At least one bullet shattered a side window, causing minor injuries to the 2-year-old, CHP said. That vehicle was not believed to be the intended target of the shooting.
Shortly after, a female teenager and man in his 20s — who were believed to have been in a separate vehicle that was targeted by the shooting or shooters — were dropped off at a nearby hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.
No arrests have been made and police have yet to identify a suspect.
It was the latest in a series of five shootings on I-80 since November, and authorities are investigating whether any of them are linked.
Last month, a person was shot and injured on I-80 in San Pablo about 3:22 p.m. Before that, three shootings on I-80 in the East Bay included a family of three shot in Berkeley on Nov. 24, the fatal shooting of San Mateo resident Anthonio Ragland in Pinole, and the injury of a man who was shot in San Pablo on Nov. 2.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the CHP at (707) 551-4100.
