FAIRFIELD (CBS13) — Officers have arrested a suspect in a shooting on Interstate 80 near Fairfield last week that left a 13-year-old boy hurt.

California Highway Patrol says, a little after 9 p.m. Friday, officers were alerted about a freeway shooting near Fairfield. The victim was driving along eastbound I-80 near Suisun Valley Road and stopped at the Cordelia Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility.

A few minutes later, an officer spotted the suspect’s vehicle on eastbound I-80 near Manual Campos Parkway.

The car exited at Lagoon Valley Road, then made a u-turn. Officers quickly swarmed the area and the suspect floored it back onto eastbound I-80.

CHP says the suspect reached speeds as high as 110 mph during the chase.

Eventually, the suspect exited at Leisure Town Road. Using a PIT maneuver, a CHP officer was able to stop the car and the chase ended. The suspect, whose name has not been released at this point, was arrested without further incident.

More from CBS Sacramento:

Officers say a 13-year-old boy who was in the other car shot at by the suspect suffered gunshot wounds to both of his legs. An officer rushed the teen to a nearby hospital due to an ambulance being delayed, CHP says.

The incident is still under investigation. Exactly what led up to the shooting is still unclear.
