tunnel when a car was hit by gunfire in september during a road rage incident. generally speaking, the motives behind freeway shootings run the gamut. many of these freeway shootings are random acts. um, but or some of them are, um, but other. other shootings take place between parties that know each other. my heart really goes out to the individuals who and their families who have been impacted by all of these freeway shootings. alameda county supervisor keith carson says it can be challenging to prevent freeway shootings before they happen. you can't be every place at the same time. but it takes that kind of a comprehensive communication network to approach these kinds of things, not knowing when they're going to take place, not knowing how to actually prevent them. the chp is asking anyone with information cell phone or dashcam video for any freeway shooting to give them a call. their tip line is air code 70791744. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. we're tracking the bay area freeway shootings

beach for 15 minutes a. rooney's family and other beachgoers watched as a rooney tried to swim human chains were formed. items like beach tents were thrown. nothing was able to bring him back all the people on that beach that they were helping us standing there. watching that happened is very tough. i mean, it's a lifelong. grief so we may not be able to recover from it. but it is. we just have to move forward 10. months later, the rooney foundation along with steve l. a nonprofit now raising awareness about beach hazards, with these stations, complete with a triangular sign. that's a danger in 12, different languages and informational sign, noting how many people have died from sneaker waves. this is a. it's a decal that can be hopefully over the years. drop and the most important component a life ring with 100 ft. of rope attached.
