|(Aug. 30, 2020. 11:55 a.m.) -- As flashed by LBREPORT.com in the 6 p.m. hour Aug. 29, a man was fatally shot at about 6 p;m. on Saturday Aug 29 on the northbound 405 freeway just south of the 605 freeway.
As of noon the day after (Aug. 30), the shooter remains at large and was last seen driving north on the 405 or possibly transitioning to the 605) toward areas that include Long Beach.
CHP's release states that at about 6:06 p.m.:
Westminster area officers responded to the area of I-405 northbound, south of I-605 for reports of shots fired. Responding officers located a light blue Hyundai Elantra within the center divider, which was occupied by a Hispanic male in his mid 20ís, appearing to have suffered a gunshot wound. The male victim was pronounced deceased on scene. During the incident, the victim vehicle collided with a maroon Honda prior to coming to rest within the center divider. The driver of the maroon Honda remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation. No suspect description is available at this time however, witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a white Mercedes Benz S550.
CHP belatedly provided (10 am hour Sunday) a release to LBREPORT.com on what took place after its public information representative was completely unavailable to us from roughly 7 p.m. (when we began inquiring about the shooting) and only provided the release at midmorning after the shooting (Aug 30) when sought through another OC CHP office. (LBREPORT.com doesn't lift or poach information from other media outlets.)
CHP's media representative was completely inaccessible to us on the night of the incident (which we learned about in the 6 p.m. hour and sought to confirm.) CHP provided information to LA TV outlets that it chose not to provide to us. No, we don't accept unequal second-class treatment on public information by taxpayer funded government entities and plan to deal with this separately.
