A robbery investigation in San Francisco caused a shutdown of the connector from southbound Interstate 280 to southbound U.S. Highway 101 Friday afternoon.

“It appears that there might have been one vehicle [whose] occupants got out and somehow stopped another vehicle and robbed them,” said California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Vu Williams, adding that the event is not believed to be “random, but a targeted robbery.”

Earlier reports indicated that a firearm was brandished by a suspect in the robbery, but it is unclear if any shots were actually fired. Williams described the car that was the subject of the robbery as a silver Hyundai, but was unable to provide a description of the other car involved.

A call about the robbery first came out at 12:50 p.m., and the CHP expects the connecter to remain shut for another “30 to 45 minutes” for the investigation.
