RENO, Nev. -- The Wells overpass east of downtown Reno was shut down early Saturday as Reno Police Department (RPD) officials investigated an overnight shooting.

RPD Lt. William Rulla told KOLO 8 News Now the shooting happened on the overpass just after 3am Saturday. He said one person, a man, was shot several times. He is in the hospital and, as of Saturday afternoon, in critical condition.

Early in the investigation Lt. Rulla said preliminary results suggested only two cars were involved and it was likely an isolated incident. He stressed, however, the investigation is not yet complete.

Police do not yet have a description of the other vehicle involved in the shooting.

Secret Witness is offering a $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect(s). If you have any more information on this shooting, please call the Reno Police Department.
