What we know so far about the 2nd 710-Freeway shooting
Updated: Jun 30
For the second time this week, a motorist was shot on the 710-Freeway in Long Beach, the California Highway Patrol announced.
The CHP stated the shooting occurred sometime around 8:30 p.m Tuesday on the Northbound 710 Freeway. Authorities are trying to pin down where on the freeway the shooting occurred but say the shooting either happened near the 405-Freeway interchange, the Pacific Coast Highway off-ramp, or the 91-Freeway.
CHP says the victim’s family drove him to a Long Beach Fire station and from the station to a nearby hospital. He is currently in a stable condition and supposedly struck in the lower body.
The victim nor his passenger could provide any descriptions of the suspect to authorities.
Why it matters:
Early Tuesday morning, a 35-year-old woman was shot on the 710-Freeway. The victim would later crash her car and was declared dead at the scene. The suspect for that shooting remains at large.
When asked if there is any connection between the two shootings, the CHP says the same team of investigators is managing both shootings.
