A police shooting involving a man authorities say was armed with a knife shut down traffic on the 10 Freeway in Upland Friday afternoon and into the evening.
The shooting occurred around 3:15 p.m. on the eastbound 10 Freeway near the San Antonio Avenue exit.
The California Highway Patrol said a man, possibly armed with a knife, was shot by an officer. The agency said the man was harming himself with the knife.
When he refused to drop the knife and made an aggressive move toward the officers, they opened fire. The man was hospitalized, but details about his condition were not immediately available.
The westbound side was also closed, forcing drivers off at Euclid.
The 60 or the 210 Freeways, or streets, were options to avoid the mess, though traffic was severely impacted.
