SEAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A motorist was hit by gunfire and killed while driving on a Southern California highway and investigators believe the shot came from another vehicle.

The California Highway Patrol responded Saturday evening to reports of gunshots on northbound Interstate 405 near Seal Beach.

Officers found a man in his 20s dead at the wheel of a Hyundai Elantra that had hit the center divider.

After the driver was shot, the Hyundai veered across lanes, colliding with a Honda Accord and then striking the divider. The Accord's driver was not hurt. The shooter was believed to be driving a white Mercedes.
