HACIENDA HEIGHTS (CBSLA) — An investigation continued Sunday into a shooting on the 60 Freeway in Hacienda Heights that claimed the life of a father and left his two teenage sons with injuries.

The CHP says a passenger in a gray sedan opened fire on Luis Mendoza and his two sons, who were traveling on the eastbound side of the thoroughfare just after 12:30 p.m. Saturday. The 35-year-old Mendoza died. His pickup truck crashed into two cars before hitting a wall. It is not clear whether the boys were hurt by bullets or hurt in the crash.
