Victim injured by shattered glass in shooting on I-80

A vehicle occupant was injured by shattered glass in a shooting on Interstate Highway 80 in Berkeley on Tuesday night, police said Wednesday.

The shooting was reported at 10:16 p.m., when gunfire shattered the vehicle's window as it was headed east on I-80 between Ashby and University avenues, police said.

The victim was injured by the glass and taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

Berkeley police are investigating the incident along with the California Highway Patrol.

It was the third shooting on the same highway this month. On Nov. 10, 25-year-old Athonio Ragland was shot and killed while driving an Audi on I-80 in Pinole. A female passenger was also injured in the shooting.

On Nov. 2, a man was found suffering gunshot wounds in a Hyundai Elantra on an I-80 shoulder in San Pablo.

CHP investigators are looking into the possibility that the prior two shootings on the highway are related, but have not yet said whether the Berkeley incident might be as well.

Anyone with information about Monday night's shooting has been asked to contact the Berkeley police homicide unit at (510) 981-5741.
