RICHMOND (CBS SF) — All lanes of eastbound Interstate Highway 580 have reopened after a police officer witnessed a drive-by shooting Saturday evening in Richmond.

A CHP officer was conducting a traffic stop on eastbound 1-580 west of Central Avenue when a white SUV passed by and a suspect allegedly started firing shots.

The CHP said the officer was not hit, but a Ford sedan was hit by one of the bullets. No injuries have been reported.

“I was just walking right here and suddenly I hear bap bap bap bap bap. At least 20 shots,” said Gigi Hsu. “I saw the police officer jump into his car and chase him down the road.”

A Sig-alert was issued for police activity at 7 p.m. and updated at 7:18 p.m. when all lanes were closed. All vehicles were being required to exit at Bayview Avenue on eastbound I-580.

The Sig-alert was cancelled at 9:19 p.m.

“We have no reason to believe at this time that the officer was the target of the shooting,” said CHP spokesperson, Officer Matthew Hamer.

Meanwhile investigation is currently ongoing. No arrests were made.
