A man was found with several bullet wounds slumped over the steering wheel of a silver Bentley on the 101 Freeway this morning in downtown. The California Highway Patrol found the car stopped on the freeway after a shots-fired call. It was "peppered with bullet holes, did not have license plates, but had paper plates that read, 'Dreams.' It carries a manufacturer's suggested price of about $176,000," reported the Associated Press. A SigAlert was issued as the investigation continued and morning rush hour traffic snarled for miles.
