CHP: Suspect in I-80 shooting has 'extensive violent criminal history'

The California Highway Patrol has released the name of one of three suspects arrested in connection with the shooting on Interstate Highway 80 that left a 24-year-old man in critical condition Thursday afternoon and shut down the eastbound lanes.

On social media Friday, friends and family of the shooting victim, a Pinole resident, reported he has died from his injuries. We have not received official confirmation of his identity.

Elliot Johnhenry Johnson, 24, of Richmond, and two juveniles were arrested shortly after gunfire erupted on the freeway near San Pablo Avenue. The juveniles are not being identified due to their age.

Johnson has “an extensive violent criminal history ranging from gun crimes to carjacking,” according to CHP.

The shooting occurred about 3:30pm and also left a 24-year-old woman injured. The victims were in a Honda Odyssey at the time. The woman is in stable condition, CHP said.

“The reason this case was solved quickly was due to several outstanding witnesses, including an off-duty police officer, coming forward and providing information to our investigators,” according to CHP, who also thanks Richmond police for their assistance.

  1. “an extensive violent criminal history ranging from gun crimes to carjacking,”

    And yet here he is free to roam our streets murdering people. Tragic.

  2. It’s so pathetic that this is the norm, however in this particular example their was luck and the alleged shooters were apprehended. Don’t be fooled, ask why Richmond lets this insanity continue.

  3. Why does Richmond lets this happen???? Why does California let it happen?? Voters have eased crime laws which makes a lot of things a slap on the wrist.

    But I will say Richmond allowing the Office Of Neighborhood Safety is an absolute joke. Paying gangsters to be gangsters to hang with other gangsters to prevent not a single thing. They let them drive city cars smoke marijuana in it. This is what the RPA wants to hire killers to keep killing.
