After CHP officers shot a pedestrian who had been struck by three cars early in the afternoon on the westbound 105 Freeway, all lanes in the Paramount area were reopened late Wednesday.

The California Highway Patrol shut down all lanes of the westbound 105 Freeway after the bizarre shooting Wednesday at 11:19 a.m. They were reopened after 9 p.m.

CHP said the officer involved shooting happened near the Garfield Avenue exit, shutting down the overpass and the onramp as officers investigated.

CHP said in a news release that a pedestrian had been struck by at least one car before officers arrived and tried to help.

The initial call said the pedestrian was hit by several vehicles, including a semi, and the caller was apparently trying to restrain the pedestrian on the side of the freeway.

It’s not clear what happened, but CHP said the pedestrian was shot by officers on the freeway.

The man had died after being taken to the hospital.

It wasn’t clear if there were witnesses.

CHP said it would not comment on what led to the shooting because it was all under investigation.

CHP was attempting to help divert cars off the freeway as they continued to investigate.
