Fontana man hospitalized after 60 Freeway shooting

A 57-year-old man from Fontana was taken to a Riverside County hospital following a shooting on the westbound side of the 60 Freeway in Jurupa Valley late Wednesday night. 

Officials with the California Highway Patrol said the possible car-to-car shooting happened just before 9:40 p.m. near the Pyrite Street exit. 

According to authorities, the man was traveling on Valley Way when he said he noticed a gray vehicle following him. As he was entering the freeway from the Valley Way exit, the gray vehicle pulled up next to him and five shots were fired from that car, officials said. It's unknown if the driver or a passenger fired those shots.


The victim was shot multiple times in the leg and back, but he was able to pull over and call 911. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. 

The California Highway Patrol issued a SigAlert around 10 p.m. for the investigation and the lanes reopened by 2 a.m.
