This afternoon at about 3:35pm, a Contra Costa CHP motorcycle unit was on an enforcement stop on Pleasant Hill Road, just north of Hwy-24, when he was contacted by a female driver in a silver Chevy Malibu who stopped to report she was the victim of a freeway shooting.
The driver reported that she had suffered a single gunshot wound to her leg and requested medical assistance. She told officers the shooting confrontation occurred with a Chrysler 300 sedan and happened on the transition ramp from I-680 southbound to HWY-24 westbound. She stated a female was driving the suspect Chrysler vehicle and a male was the passenger.
The victim told officers the male passenger of the Chrysler fired at her car before the suspect vehicle fled the area. Two juvenile passengers in her vehicle were not injured.
The victim was taken to John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek for a non-life threatening injury to her leg, according to police.
A CHP spokesman said the incident is being investigated in cooperation with the CHP Golden Gate Division Investigative Services Unit, which will now be the lead in this investigation.
