A CHP officer and a suspect exchanged gunfire in a shootout on Highway 680 in Alamo this morning around 8:20 a.m. Both men were wounded in the shootout and rushed to John Muir Medical Center.

All lanes of 680-southbound were closed north of Livorna Road and are expected to remain closed until this afternoon. Thousands of people are currently stuck on the freeway with nowhere to go.

As of 11:10 a.m., a driver reported getting on the freeway in Lafayette to head to Walnut Creek and had not moved in over 25 minutes, so the freeway closure is affecting the entire area.
