Road rage may be the motivation behind a shooting that injured a man on the eastbound 91 Freeway near the 5 Freeway in Fullerton on Monday afternoon.

The shooting initially occurred at about 4:30 p.m. in Fullerton. The victim, who was driving a white SUV, called 911, while he followed the suspect on the freeway. California Highway Patrol officers caught up to him in Anaheim Hills. A suspect was later detained at the Weir Canyon exit.

Several bullet holes could be seen in the victim's vehicle.

The victim was taken to a trauma center with a non-life threatening gunshot wound in the upper torso.

Fullerton Police temporarily shut down the eastbound 91 Freeway at Magnolia Avenue at about 7:40 p.m. for about an hour to gather evidence.

This is the second shooting on the 91 Freeway in less than a month. In July, David Cabrera allegedly fatally shot one man and wounded another man while driving on the 91 Freeway in Anaheim.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call Detective Malone of the Fullerton Police Department at (714) 738-6534.
