Two people were shot while driving on Interstate 8 near El Cajon Boulevard Monday night, the California Highway Patrol confirmed.
The CHP said a man and a woman in their 30s were driving at around 9:30 p.m. when they were hit by gunfire. Authorities said the victims were in a black Nissan Sentra at the time.
The extent of their injuries is unknown.
The CHP shut down eastbound I-8 between Spring Street and State Route 125 as they investigated the incident.
The victims exited the freeway and pulled over at a 76 gas station. The Heartland Fire Department responded and transported the victims to Sharp Memorial Hospital.
CHP did not say if the gunfire came from another car.
“We obviously took the vehicle for evidence. We’re going to process it. We took a lot of pictures here (76 gas station), but the vehicle is going to get processed at a more controlled environment to where we can go through the vehicle thoroughly, try to recover what we can out of it and see where the investigation takes us,” said CHP Officer Travis Garrow.
