60 Freeway in Diamond Bar reopened after shooting [Updated]
The shooting occurred in nearby La Puente shortly before 7:30 a.m. when two men got in a heated argument at Old Valley Road and Valley Boulevard, said Sgt. Tom Wilson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
One of the men pulled out a gun and fired “several rounds” at the other, Wilson said.
The two men fought over the gun, and the man who initially fired it fled in a vehicle. He was injured and driving east on the 60 Freeway when he passed out. His car skidded into the center divider just past Diamond Bar Boulevard, Wilson said.
An off-duty officer who stopped to help noticed the man was injured and had a gun.
He was taken to Pomona Valley Hospital, where he was under guard Wednesday.
The man he fought with was treated at a different hospital for three gunshot wounds: On his hand, the side of his head and in the middle of his face.
[Updated at 11:49 a.m.: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the man who fired the gun suffered three gunshot wounds; it was the other man who did.]
The investigation was ongoing. Wilson said the man who shot the gun was 50 years old, and the other was 43 or 44.
