At least one person has died and another is wounded after a shooting on the Bay Bridge, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The shooting investigation has closed four of the five eastbound lanes near Treasure Island. All lanes were temporarily closed earlier this morning.

The CHP says just before 2:30 a.m.. someone in a vehicle opened fire at an SUV. The SUV crashed into a third vehicle just west of Treasure Island. The vehicle where the shots came from got away.

This morning's shooting is the second to occur on Bay Area freeways within the past 10 hours, as a  shooting on westbound I-80 in unincorporated Contra Costa County injured at least one person  on Sunday evening.
It's unclear if the victim in Sunday's evening freeway shooting was shot or injured in a traffic collision and Tatum said the two shootings are being investigated as unrelated incidents.
