The California High Patrol is investigating a fatal shooting on I-80 near Truckee in what officials say could be related to motorcycle clubs.

Officials with CHP say the shooting happened just before 4 p.m. Witnesses told authorities three other motorcyclists dressed in black shot at the unidentified man.

The victim was transported to a hospital in Reno, but died from his injuries.

CHP says the victim is affiliated with a motorcycle gang, but is "a friend of the club, not a member." Officials haven't disclosed which club the victim had ties to, and won't say if the suspects are in from another club.

Westbound I-80 at Truckee, near the Nevada state line, will be shutdown until at least midnight, CHP says.
