CHP Officers discovered bullet holes in the door of her Honda. Two other people survived after being shot along East Bay Freeways-- one Sunday on 580 in Livermore, and the other Monday morning on 80 in Richmond.

The CHP says the three crimes are not related.

John Fransed, with the CHP said, "All three of these shootings appear to be targeted and investigators believe that the shooting on Highway 4 in Contra Costa County was gang-related."

Since late 2015, the CHP says there have been 185 shootings on Bay Area Freeways.

Nine people have been killed and 65 others have been wounded.
