An Uber driver and two passengers were hospitalized with injuries early Sunday following what authorities are calling a "targeted" shooting on the I-880 freeway in Oakland.
As the East Bay Times reports, the shooting took places at 4:15 a.m. in the southbound lanes of 880 near the 23rd Avenue offramp.
According to CHP Sgt. Robert Nacke, two "partygoers were on their way home in a Toyota Highlander when some[one] started shooting at them."
Parts of the freeway were shut down in the ensuing investigation, as ABC 7 tells us, though all lanes have since reopened.
All three victims, including the driver, were male, and it remains unclear why they may have been targeted. No suspects had been identified as of this morning, and the CHP is seeking tips and information at 707-551-4100.
KRON 4 reports that police do not believe the Uber driver was being targeted.
This was the third freeway shooting on 880 in the last two months, following two others that occurred in Hayward in August. At the time, ABC 7 noted that the Bay Area had crossed a disturbing threshold with the 100th freeway shooting in the region in just two years.
