Interstate 10 in Redlands briefly closed for shooting probe
Traffic was diverted to the 210 Freeway for about 45 minutes while Redlands police and highway patrol officers searched an area between Alabama and California streets, said Redlands Police Department spokesman Carl Baker.
As the search continued, authorities reopened several lanes of the 10, an important transportation artery, Baker said.
The investigation grew out of a shooting that was reported to Redlands police just before 3 a.m. Baker said that authorities received a call from a gas station near the California Street exit that someone had been shot through the door of his vehicle.
There was no suspect or vehicle description, Baker said. The condition of the victim, who underwent surgery, was not immediately known.
Baker said anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det. Tony Ortiz at (909) 798-7659 or Redlands police dispatch at (909) 798-7681. Anonymous tips can be provided by texting 274637 using the keyword "REDTIP."
