LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The California Highway Patrol sought the public's help today in identifying and locating four men as well as a white Nissan Maxima with dark-tinted windows in connection with an apparent road-rage shooting on the Harbor (110) Freeway in South Los Angeles that left two people wounded.

The car-to-car shooting occurred about 2:55 p.m. Tuesday on the northbound freeway near 120th Street, the CHP reported.

One of the four occupants inside the Nissan fired multiple rounds into a white Volkswagen Jetta. The driver of the Jetta was struck once in the upper torso and the right front passenger was struck once in her right elbow.

The victims continued to the area of Central and Slauson avenues, more than three miles from the shooting location, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The driver of the Jetta stopped at the parking lot of a McDonald's at 1118 Slauson Ave., the CHP said. Paramedics rushed both victims to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center in stable condition.

The shooting began as a road rage incident, according to NBC4, which reported that the female driver was shot in the upper body and a female passenger was hit in the elbow.

The four suspects were last seen going north on the 110 Freeway, Madison said.

The CHP urged anyone with information regarding the shooting to call them at 213-744-2331.
