The man shot by CHP officers along Interstate-80 Monday night is in the hospital under police guard, and suspected of several violent crimes.

Sacramento Police say 42-year-old Webster Lee shot a woman in his Oakmont Street apartment Monday morning, stole a car from a neighbor and put the victim inside.

Police say Lee then shot a man who tried to take the away the keys.

They say Lee then drove the stolen car to concord with the first shooting victim, and his wife and his daughter.

Around noon, Concord Police found Lee’s wife and the woman who’d been shot. They later found the stolen car and Lee’s teenaged daughter.

She was uninjured, but Lee was nowhere to be found, investigators say.

Then – around 7 p.m. – someone fitting Lee’s description stole a pickup truck from a grocery store parking lot in Concord.

About a half-hour later, Highway Patrol officers spotted the stolen truck in Dixon and pulled it over.

They say the 6-foot-7-inch Webster Lee got out of the truck and rushed at the officers, so they shot him.

CHP officers say Lee continued to fight with them, even as they pulled him out of the roadway and rendered first aid.

Lee is recovering in a Vacaville hospital, facing charges of attempted murder, carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon.

He is expected to survive, as are both of the people he is accused of shooting.
