Northern Calif. freeway reopens as manhunt goes on
Northern Calif. freeway reopens after being shut down for more than 6 hours; manhunt continues
By The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' Northern California's main interstate has reopened while law enforcement authorities search a neighborhood in the state capital for an armed carjacker.

A series of carjackings and the suspect's shooting at officers Friday morning led authorities to close a section of Interstate 80 in both directions just west of Sacramento.

The closure brought to a standstill one of the essential freeway systems in Northern California and the region's main out-of-state corridor, beginning at 6 a.m. during the early commute and continuing into early afternoon.

California Highway Patrol Officer Bryan Konvalin says the freeway was partially reopening shortly after 12:30 p.m. The CHP expected it to be fully open within the hour.
