A rollover crash was reported on the eastbound 10 Freeway near Cherry Avenue about 4:09 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log.

A man who was bleeding from his head was spotted inside the vehicle, prompting officials to stop traffic.

Authorities received a call reporting someone heard gunfire, but officials were unable to confirm if any shots were fired.

A SWAT unit was sent to the scene to investigate, said a supervisor with the Inland Communication Center.

Just before 4:40 a.m., a SigAlert was issued for the closure of all traffic lanes on both the eastbound and westbound sides of the freeway.

The westbound lanes reopened about 6 a.m., but two lanes on the eastbound side of the freeway remained closed, according to the CHP. Officials confirmed the entire freeway had reopened just before 8 a.m.

Investigators later determined there was no shooting on the freeway, said CHP Officer Garcia.
