CHP investigating three freeway shooting incidents in the last three days, one killed

The California Highway Patrol is investigating three separate Bay Area freeway shootings, one of them killing a woman. 

A memorial of lanterns marks the spot where Destinee Hillery, 25, of Antioch died after someone shot her car on Highway 4 in Concord. She crashed her Honda on the Willow Pass Road exit.

The CHP says none of the three incidents on the freeway were random attacks.

"Right now investigators believe that it indeed was gang related," CHP Officer John Fransen said of Hillery's slaying.

In an unrelated incident at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday, a woman was shot in the leg while riding in a car on I-580 near Isabel Avenue in Livermore. 

"This also appears to be a targeted shooting and may have been road rage," Fransen said.

And in a third incident Monday morning, a car was shot at on westbound I-80 near Macdonald Avenue in Richmond. The driver wasn't hurt. 

Investigators will be checking surveillance cameras, gunfire detectors and license plate readers along Highway 4 to help solve the deadly shooting. 

"Right now we have victims that are cooperating with us," Fransen said. "CHP will be looking at the ShotSpotter camera systems that are located on both Highway 4 and also I-80 for two of the incidents that occurred."

Mary Knox, a Contra Costa County prosecutor who helped secure state funding for the surveillance system now in place along I-80 and Highway 4, says "The footage is viewable now, and so if any of the cars involved in the incident this weekend are on the areas of the freeways where license plate readers and cameras have been installed, potentially they could be used in this investigation."

Drivers who travel along Highway 4 said they were concerned.

"It's scary. It's really sad because you're traveling on Highway 4 all the time with kids," said Marquita Page of Pittsburg. "You don't know what's happening, road rage, things like that. My heart goes out to her family."
