A person was injured in a reported officer-involved shooting on eastbound Interstate Highway 80 in Dixon Monday night, Dixon fire officials said.

The highway was shut down following a traffic stop at about 7:50 p.m. near the Pedrick Road offramp to I-80 and a Sig-alert was issued about 10 minutes later, the California Highway Patrol said.

Traffic is being diverted off the highway at Pedrick and proceeding on a frontage road to Kidwell Road as the investigation continues. It is unclear how long the freeway might remain closed.
