60 Freeway reopens in Chino after man reportedly armed with knife is shot by police

Authorities closed part of the 60 Freeway in Chino on Wednesday morning.

A man reportedly armed with a knife was shot by Chino police Wednesday morning in an incident that shut down a stretch of the 60 Freeway during the morning rush hour.

The freeway was shut down in both directions near Central Avenue after police responded to reports of a man with a knife, officials said.

Authorities said the suspect, who has not been identified, “refused to comply with officers” and was shot, suffering superficial wounds.

The freeway’s eastbound lanes reopened about 8:50 a.m., according to the Chino Police Department, and westbound lanes reopened about 9:20.


“No officers were injured, and the suspect was taken to a local hospital,” the department wrote on Twitter. “The investigation is ongoing.”
