Two people were shot. A woman in the passenger seat suffered moderate injuries, while a young girl, believed to be five to six year old, suffered major injuries. There are few details beyond that, not even a description of the vehicle from where the gunshots were believed to have come from, which is why the CHP is asking members of the public to call them if they witnessed the incident or saw or heard anything unusual on Interstate 80 last night.

"If they saw something at that time where they could have heard it or actually seen the incident as it actually occurred, gunshots going off, seen it, just anything out of the ordinary like that at that time," said Officer Custodio Lopez.

The public can call 1-800-TELL-CHP.
