A man who pulled his car off to the side of the 210 freeway was shot last night while sitting in the vehicle, reports KTLA.

The car was stopped on the right side of the road and was sitting on the shoulder, near the San Bernadino Ave. exit. NBC Los Angeles reports that the driver had stopped to fix a flat tire. He at one point was sitting in the car, and that's when another car reportedly drove up next to him and opened fire. Both the driver and passenger side windows were found shattered when officers arrived on the scene.

The incident happened at about 10:30 p.m., and the driver was taken to the hospital. His condition hasn't been released yet, although some witnesses have said that he was shot in the head.
