Shots fired on the westbound Foothill Freeway in Pasadena left one person dead and another wounded Friday afternoon, police said. The shooting, which occurred near Hill Avenue about 4 p.m., forced the closure of the westbound lanes of the freeway for about two hours, said Pasadena Police Lt. Mike Korpal.
