SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — A connector ramp where at least one California Highway Patrol officer shot a motorist in San Jose late Sunday night has reopened Monday morning.

The shooting was reported at about 11:30 p.m. on the connector ramp from northbound U.S. Highway 101 to northbound Interstate Highway 880, according to CHP Officer Ross Lee.

Officers were responding to a report of a collision when the shooting took place, Lee said.

CHP officers responding to the accident ended up in a brief gun battle with the driver of a black four-door sedan.

No CHP officers were injured, but the driver was shot and suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening. No other details about the shooting were immediately available from the CHP.

San Jose police and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office are investigating the shooting, Lee said.
