Southbound state Highway 242 is closed tonight from state Highway 4 to Solano Way in Concord as California Highway Patrol officers investigate a shooting that injured a man, CHP officials said.

The shooting occurred at about 5:06 p.m. on southbound state Highway 242 north of Solano Way in Concord.

Two men in a black Mercedes sedan told CHP officers that they were shot at. One man was hit and suffered injuries not considered life-threatening, according to CHP officials.
