OAKLAND (KRON) -- Oakland police are searching for the two people inside a white sedan which opened fire on a red Camaro Monday afternoon on a busy freeway off-ramp leaving one person dead and another wounded.

Witnesses say the red car was exiting I-580 at MacArthur at about 4:30 p.m. Monday when the white sedan came alongside.  The passenger in the white car fired more than 15 shots, witnesses say.  The Camaro then smashed into a telephone pole.

Police say the passenger in the Camaro was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of that car was wounded but managed to get away on foot.

The investigation closed the MacArthur off-ramp from I-580 for more than three and a hour hours.

If you know anything about this crime, contact Oakland police or your local authorities.
