UPDATED, 4:09 p.m.:
An Oakland man on parole for human trafficking is in custody on suspicion of DUI and weapons charges following a high-speed crash and shooting on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge early Thursday morning, a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer said.
Antonio Roberson, 29, remains at a hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening following the 2 a.m. crash at the S-curve, east of Treasure Island, CHP Officer Michael Ferguson said.
A shooting followed the crash, but Ferguson said no other information about the incident is being released yet because of the ongoing investigation.
Roberson and a 26-year-old woman from Australia who was also in the car were taken to a hospital with injuries from the crash. The woman had been released as of Thursday afternoon, Ferguson said.
Roberson was on parole for false imprisonment for the purpose of human trafficking, and is expected to be booked on the DUI and weapons charges once he is released from the hospital, according to Ferguson.
The investigation into the crash and shooting shut down lanes and snarled eastbound traffic on the bridge for most of the morning. All lanes were back open by 10 a.m., CHP Officer James Evans said.
San Francisco Police homicide inspectors are assisting the CHP in the investigation into the shooting, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Sporadic lane closures on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge could last until 10:30 a.m. today as officers investigate a shooting incident there, according to the California Highway Patrol.
CHP first responded to the incident on the lower deck of the Bay Bridge at around 2 a.m. and closed all lanes headed to Oakland for about 15 minutes. Three lanes were opened for several hours after that, but were closed again briefly around 4:30 a.m., and CHP has been sporadically opening and closing lanes since then.
San Francisco police recently took over the investigation, according to CHP.
The bridge may not fully reopen until 10:30 a.m.
