A female motorist was shot several times and killed late last night on I-80. According to the Gate:

Richmond police and CHP officers said a female was shot multiple times and killed and a male was shot and critically injured in the attack, which began around 9:15 p.m. on I-80 in Pinole. The ages of the victims were unknown.

Police are investigating whether the victim knew the shooters or if this was a case of road rage. No arrests have been made in the case. Also, this makes the second time this week a shooting has happened on the same stretch of highway. On Tuesday someone was shot "in the westbound lanes of I-80 at Hilltop Drive," but the police have called that a "targeted attack."

In related news, Southern California is experiencing a new wave of freeway shootings. Ack. Be careful out there on the 101, So Cal brethren.

Update: The victim has been identified as Rhonda White.The car used by the killer was "apparently left at the scene."
