A large caliber bullet shattered the window of a car traveling along Interstate 580 on Thursday, killing a 36-year-old woman computer operator, police said. The body of Lori Anne Rochon of Oakland was found inside her car, which had rolled to a halt against a guard rail at the Grand Avenue overpass about 3:20 a.m., with the gearshift lever still in the "drive" position, officers said. "It appears the bullet was fired from outside her car," homicide Sgt. Robert Chenault said.

Declaring that roadway gunslingers "should be behind bars, not behind the wheel," Gov. George Deukmejian on Saturday called for legislation to hire immediately 150 Highway Patrol officers to help break the epidemic of California freeway violence. Under the "urgency" bill, which would take effect immediately upon the governor's signature, Deukmejian promised that the new officers would "be assigned to the areas experiencing the greatest freeway violence problem."
