Lanes of Interstate 80 began reopening just past 10 p.m.

CHP officers say the suspect was driving at a high rate of speed on Interstate 80 when they pulled him over. The suspect is believed to have been involved in a Sacramento assault earlier in the day.

Officers say after he pulled over, he charged at them, forcing one of the officers to fire one shot from a shotgun. It is unclear whether the suspect was armed or not.

The suspect was down in one of the lanes, forcing the closure of the highway. The suspect was transported to a Vacaville hospital.
