No injuries have been reported following a shooting on eastbound Interstate Highway 580 in Richmond on Saturday night, authorities said.
A California Highway Patrol officer was conducting a traffic stop on the highway west of Central Avenue at 6:47 p.m. when a white SUV passed by and a suspect allegedly started firing shots. The CHP officer was not hit by bullets, but a Ford sedan was struck by one bullet, police said.
The shooting caused a shutdown of traffic lanes. All lanes were open as of 9:30 p.m.
The investigation is currently ongoing and no further information was immediately available.
