On Wednesday, a video shared with KRON4 showed a scary moment for an Oakland couple who was caught in the midst of crossfire on I-580. They said a stray bullet entered the front passenger window and came out through the back window without hitting anyone. With freeway shootings on the rise, Governor Gavin Newsom said that Alameda and Contra Costa counties would receive new freeway cameras in the fall.
