HACIENDA HEIGHTS (CNS) - A gunman remains at large after a car-to-car shooting on the Pomona (60) Freeway in Hacienda Heights resulted in a multi-vehicle crash and left a man dead and his two sons injured.
The California Highway Patrol initially said that three people were injured and transported to a hospital by Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics, but could not immediately confirm the death. According to CBS2, the man died at a hospital.
It was unclear if any of the victims were struck by gunfire.
The shooting was reported at 12:28 p.m. Saturday and caused a multi-vehicle collision at the 60 Freeway and Seventh Avenue, according to CHP Officer Elizabeth Kravig. All eastbound lanes were shut down at Seventh as a result, and a subsequent police investigation closed the transition road from both sides of the San Gabriel River (605) Freeway to the eastbound 60.
The suspect vehicle was described as a gray Toyota Corolla or Camry, Kravig said. No suspect description was available.
The freeway was cleared and the SigAlert canceled about 5:35 p.m., according to the CHP.
