SAN DIEGO — Authorities are investigating two shootings that took place minutes apart on major San Diego roadways.

California Highway Patrol said officers got word Tuesday at 2:14 a.m. about a shooting on I-805 northbound south of Imperial. The victim reported being shot by someone in a black four-door sedan, CHP said.

Twelve minutes later, officers were notified of a second shooting on state Route 94 at College Grove. The victim described the gunman’s car as a black four-door sedan, similar to a Nissan Altima or Maxima.

Video from the scene showed a white SUV with bullet holes and shattered driver and front passenger windows. A window was also broken on a smaller, black SUV.

A CHP spokesperson said the victims were taken to nearby hospitals for care and are expected to recover.

“Nothing in the logs appear to indicate the victims recognized the suspect vehicle,” CHP said in an emailed update.

Officers are investigating both incidents and if they are connected.

Anyone with information about the shootings was asked to contact CHP Investigator Sergeant Newton at 619-302-4485 or Officer Arturo Berain at 619-572-6953.
