LOS ANGELES - The California Highway Patrol continues to investigate more freeway shootings after shots were fired on the 605 and 5 Freeways over the weekend.
The latest incident occurred in Anaheim on Sunday around 8:45 p.m. A man said he was driving his Nissan Altima on the 5 Freeway when someone fired between four to five shots at his vehicle, hitting the back of his car and one of its tires. CHP temporarily shut down the freeway to search for shell casings and other evidence.
Officials said the suspect was driving a black Ford Fusion with tinted windows.
The night before, two freeway shootings were reported within hours apart on the 605 freeway in Irwindale.
The first incident happened around 5:13 p.m. Saturday on the southbound 605 at Lower Azusa Road, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Elizabeth Kravig.
Shots were fired and at least one vehicle crashed.
It was indicated that the shooting may have caused the crash, Kravig said.
A SigAlert was issued around 5:30 p.m. for all southbound lanes in the area so CHP officers could investigate, she said. The SigAlert was canceled and all lanes reopened about 7:10 p.m.
Los Angeles County firefighters summoned to the scene were told there were no injuries, said Dispatch Supervisor Bernard Peters.
