The eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway near Redlands were shut down Tuesday evening while a police investigation was underway after the termination of a vehicle pursuit.

Around 7 p.m., officers from the Fontana Police Department attempted a vehicle check on a driver at a McDonald’s on the 3800 block of Sierra Avenue, near the 15 Freeway, said Fontana Officer Steven Reed. During the check, a shooting occurred before the suspects took off in their vehicle.

Information on the extent of their injuries, how they were injured, or if more people were in the suspects’ vehicle was not immediately available.
