Pretty ... pretty congested

Update (noon): All lanes of the eastbound span of the Bay Bridge are open again to traffic; however, media outlets report traffic is still sluggish for San Francisco drivers headed to the East Bay. Calls to the CHP have not yet been returned, but press reports say nobody was injured in the early-morning shooting.

(Original story 7:34 a.m.): Drivers headed to the East Bay might want to hop on BART instead. The CHP has closed down all but one lane of the lower deck of the Bay Bridge while police investigate an early morning shooting.

The press is reporting that CHP officers were chasing a car across the lower deck this morning, when the driver stopped and shots were fired. However, it's not yet known who fired the shots and if anyone was hurt.

Traffic is backed up to the Interstate 80 and

Highway 101 interchange.

Officer Carlos Manfredi said San Francisco police are at the scene, along with homicide investigators.

Traffic is definitely problematic right now, and police say the lanes will not be reopened until at least 10:30 a.m.

We'll update you when as soon as we know more.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
