Two people shot in a drive-by attack on state Route 94 in Lemon Grove remain hospitalized Monday but are expected to recover, authorities said.

The attack happened shortly after 9:45 p.m. Sunday on westbound SR 94 near Lemon Grove Avenue, California Highway Patrol Officer Travis Garrow said.

Four people in a Toyota Corolla reported that a gray Toyota sedan with five occupants pulled up alongside and someone inside the car fired five or six shots at them for unknown reasons, Garrow said.

An unidentified man and a woman were transported to a hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds to the lower body, but their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, he said.

No other injuries were reported.

CHP officers shut down the right two lanes of westbound SR 94 between College Grove and College Grove Way for the investigation. The lanes were re- opened around 4:45 Monday morning.

No suspect descriptions were immediately available.
