SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man who died after an assailant shot him and another man as the pair drove on U.S. Highway 101 in San Francisco last week has been identified as 30-year-old Bryan Kelley, the city’s Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Just before 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 21, Kelley, a San Francisco resident, was driving on the highway’s southbound lanes near Cesar Chavez Street when a shooter in another vehicle shot Kelley and Kelley’s 28-year-old brother, who was in the passenger seat, according to the California Highway Patrol.READ MORE: Looming La Niña May Push Western Drought From Bad to Worse

Video on the scene showed the Cesar Chavez exit off southbound 101 covered with debris. The bullet-riddled black sedan had crashed into high impact barrels before slamming to a stop on the exit.
Investigators finally reopened all lanes on the busy freeway at around 2 a.m., unraveling a massive backup that began building shortly after the shooting.MORE NEWS: Air Quality Advisory Extended Through Monday Due To Wildfire Smoke
