    Nov. 30, 2012: Police investigate the scene of an apparent freeway shooting on the Hollywood (170) Freeway in North Hollywood.

    Authorities continued on Saturday to look for a gunman in a white, four-door car who shot a woman in the neck and grazed an occupied baby seat in a car-to-car shooting on the Hollywood Freeway.

    The shots were fired from an imported white, four-door in southbound lanes near Sherman Way, but so far there's nothing definitive about the make and model, officials said.
