The 91 Freeway has reopened in both directions at Interstate 15 in the Corona area of Riverside County, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The freeway had been closed after an officer-involved shooting Tuesday night, but all lanes were reopened as of 6:14 a.m. Wednesday, the official said.

The freeway was closed after a CHP officer shot and killed an allegedly armed man. The shooting caused traffic backups into Orange County.

Details of the shooting, including the victim's identity, were not immediately available.
