Reported shooting closes 405 North

Authorities say a possible shooting halted northbound traffic on Highway 405 in Van Nuys during Monday’s evening rush hour.

Dispatchers received reports of a shooting at 3:24 p.m. between people in two vehicles on the northbound 405 Freeway near Sherman Way, California Highway Patrol Officer Edgar Figueroa said. Both vehicles fled the scene, Figueroa said.

Officers responding to the scene between Victory Boulevard and Sherman Way initially found no victims or anyone involved in the possible shooting, CHP Officer Weston Haver said.

Authorities have received reports that gunshot victims may have gone to hospitals, but so far the CHP has not found any, Haver said.

The northbound 405 was closed just north of Victory Boulevard while officers search for evidence. Lane No. 4 and the right shoulder reopened shortly after 5 p.m., Haver said.

A SigAlert has been issued for an unknown duration for 405 North at Sherman Way, according to the CHP.

Further information was not immediately available.
