CASTRO VALLEY (KRON) — Investigators are looking into two cars that were apparently involved in a shooting on a highway off-ramp in Castro Valley Wednesday morning, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
The shooting was reported around 11:50 a.m. at the Redwood Road off-ramp from eastbound Interstate Highway 580 near the Castro Valley BART station, said sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly.
Deputies responded and found shell casings on the off-ramp, but did not find any victims or suspects.
Investigators are checking businesses and homes in the area to make sure they were not hit by stray bullets. They are also checking local hospitals for shooting victims.
People inside a bronze SUV and a silver hatchback were shooting at each other, according to deputies. Kelly said he doesn’t know if the shooting started on the highway, but the shell casings were found on the off-ramp.
Investigators have not determined whether it was a road rage incident or a targeted shooting, Kelly said.
Redwood Road off-ramp is closed Wednesday afternoon as deputies continue to investigate the area. Deputies hope to have it cleared up soon, so there is not much traffic backup.
