Eastbound 10 Freeway near Redlands closed after pursuit ends – Press Enterprise

The eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway near Redlands were closed Tuesday night while a police investigation was conducted after the completion of a vehicle pursuit.

Around 7 pm, officers with the Fontana Police Department attempted to search a driver’s vehicle at a McDonald’s in the 3800 block of Sierra Avenue near the 15 Freeway, Fontana officer Steven Reed said. During the control, a shooting took place before the suspects took off in his vehicle.

It was not immediately known who fired his gun, Reed said. No officers were injured.

The chase ended around 7:30 p.m. after officers pitted the vehicle on the 10 Freeway off Tennessee Street. The two occupants of the vehicle were taken to a hospital. Information on the extent of their injuries, how they were injured or whether there were more people in the vehicle than the suspects was not immediately available.

All eastbound lanes on the freeway at Tennessee Street were closed as of 7:35 p.m., according to California Highway Patrol records, and Caltrans advised motorists to take alternate routes.

As of 8:54 p.m., the CHP log said the eastbound closure would begin just west of Alabama Street, with traffic diverted to the 210 Freeway.
