An officer from the Northeast Community Station was uninjured this morning after being the target of a drive-by shooting on the Northbound Interstate 5 freeway near Colorado Street.

The shooting was reported around 5:30 a.m. A four-door, older model, black Sedan pulled up alongside of the officer, who was driving home, and the passenger opened fire, hitting the car multiple times.

So he was off duty? They followed him after he got off? Must be someone he hassled on his shift......that's a huge tip.
