A shooting investigation has begun after good Samaritans helped a man they found shot and walking this evening on northbound Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland, California Highway Patrol officials said.

A little after 6 p.m. the CHP received reports of a two-vehicle collision on Highway 880, CHP Officer Matthew Hamer said.

They flagged down police and police took the man to a hospital.
