A 5-year-old girl was killed in a weekend shooting on an East Bay highway Saturday night. She was identified as Eliyanah Crisostomo by the Alameda County coroner.
The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. Saturday in southbound lanes of Interstate 880 near Milpitas, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The girl was taken to a hospital, where she later died, ABC 7 News reported.
The entire highway was closed during the investigation, but some lanes reopened after about an hour.
Authorities were also investigating a separate shooting around 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Fremont, the news station reported. Nobody was hurt in that incident.
Three suspects were later arrested in connection with the Fremont shooting, and a gun was recovered, according to the Santa Cruz Police Department.
Investigators were trying to determine if the two shootings were connected.
A GoFundMe fundraiser for the girl's family said the family was en route to an Outback restaurant in Milpitas for a family birthday dinner when the girl was shot.
