What CHP is calling an isolated highway shooting has left a family without a father.
“He does have two kids,“ she said.
Only seven years old and nine months old, Jay’s sister tells us both kids were inside of the car when the shooting happened and both are lucky to be alive.
“I think it’s a miracle because there was way more than one bullet. I mean glass breaking all of that. I think it’s a miracle,” said Jay’s sister, who tells us her brother’s seven-year-old daughter remembers a group of bikers surrounding the car before shots rang out.
“It was a motorcycle gang of about 30…and there was two cars following behind the motorcycle gang,” she said.
Despite this information, CHP has made no arrests.
