All lanes of northbound Interstate 5 near Carlsbad were closed Thursday morning for about an hour after a shooting was reported on the freeway, Carlsbad police said.
The shooting was reported around 9 a.m. on north I-5 near Cannon Road. It was being investigated by the California Highway Patrol, said Carlsbad police Sgt. Nate Horton.
Freeway lanes were shut down for about an hour and reopened just before 10 a.m., Horton said. He said no injuries were reported.
Calls to spokespersons with the CHP were not immediately returned.
People on Twitter reported seeing officers walking the freeway lanes, apparently looking for spent cartridges and other evidence.
Carlsbad police reponded to the shooting initially but handed the investigation over to CHP.
“All I know is there was a shooting that occurred on the freeway,” Horton said.
It was not immediately clear if the shooter was in a vehicle and fired at another car, or if the shooter was on the ground or on a freeway overpass.
