Early AM shooting injures one, shuts down I-580 at Powell Exit

1 min read

One person was injured after a shooting on Interstate Highway 580 in Oakland early Sunday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol. The shooting occurred on westbound Highway 580 near MacArthur Boulevard around 2:45 a.m., the CHP said. The shooting happened just before the 80 split. The driver whose red Cadillac Escalade was hit by four bullets got off the freeway and drove to a nearby gas station in Emeryville to call police for help.


Witnesses told authorities that a sedan had pulled up alongside the SUV and a passenger leaned out of the right side window and began shooting back at the Escalade. The Escalade had three other passengers with him when the shooting happened. None of them were seriously hurt, though the driver was treated for a head wound that would be caused by some of the glass fragments and the broken windows. CHP and Oakland police shut down several lanes of the freeway as they began their investigation into the shooting.

When officers went to the crime scene at the 80/580 split and started gathering evidence. They were able to find a handful of shell casings but noted that finding casings after a freeway shooting is like finding a needle in a haystack.
