BURBANK (CBSLA.com) — A shooting on a freeway overpass in the Burbank area left a man injured and brought traffic to a standstill for hours.

The car-to-car shooting unfolded around 7:45 p.m. Monday and prompted the California Highway Patrol to temporarily shut the Burbank Boulevard off-ramps in both directions of the 5 Freeway.

The 30-year-old man was struck in the chest but managed to drive himself to another location, where he dialed 911.

He was taken to a hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Footage showed a bullet hole to the driver’s side of the car.

Police remained on the scene and were in search for the suspected shooter, described as a man in a black vehicle.

That car was last seen traveling westbound on the overpass.

What prompted the shooting was not immediately clear.

Police said the overpass has since reopened to traffic along with the freeway off-ramps.
