Two men suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds in the latest in a series of recent shootings on Highway 4 in Pittsburg Thursday.
Officers discovered the victims in a car pulled off to the side of the freeway in the westbound direction near Railroad Avenue at 9:57 p.m. Both were taken to a local hospital for treatment while officers closed the freeway to facilitate their investigation of the incident.
Policer said the driver and his passenger were shot at in what appears to be an attempted road rage incident. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown vehicle subsequent to the shooting, according to the CHP.
Thursday’s incident was the fourth shooting to occur on SR4 since April 27.
