As a news story breaking early on a Sunday morning, details have emerged slowly. that officers with the California Highway Patrol say that “At 3:45 a.m. Highway patrol officers were investigating a crash involving multiple lanes on the bridge when a vehicle drove toward an officer for unknown reasons.”
“An officer opened fire, shooting the suspect multiple times,” they report.
, the collision occurred just west of the toll plaza, and “Shortly after, an incident occurred in the same area with people not involved in the crash that led to a shooting involving police.”
CHP spokesperson Officer Vu Williams that “one person, a motorist, was shot by an officer around 3:45 a.m. and transported to a hospital.” As of publication time, the condition of the suspect,which KTVU identifies as male, is unknown.
that the closure, which is just east of the Yerba Buena Island tunnel, has backed up eastbound traffic “for at least a mile,” leaving cars “parked on the bridge because there is nowhere to go.”
