Three people hospitalized with gunshot wounds in Berkeley freeway shooting

- The CHP is investigating a triple shooting that forced the closure of several lanes on eastbound Interstate 80 in Berkeley early Saturday morning.

Authorities told KTVU they believe the shooting happened at about 3:20 a.m. 

"Our investigators are trying to get more information from the victims," said CHP Officer Custodio Lopez. "So far, (the victims) are the only witnesses to the crime."

The condition of the victims are not known at this time, but the CHP said the three were able to drive themselves to the hospital.

Officers shut down eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 between Gilman Street and University Avenue, as they investigated what happened.

Vehicles were diverted off the roadway at Gilman, but the CHP reopened all lanes of I-80 just before 7 a.m. And then around 11:30 a.m., authorities shutdown eastbound I-80 at Powell Street for about 30 minutes.

The CHP in Oakland posted a photo of officers checking each lane, and looking for evidence.

Authorities have not released any suspects' information, or whether the incident may have been a drive-by shooting.

There is no word as to when all lanes of I-80 will reopen.
