2nd Drive-By Shooting On Menlo Park Neighborhood Block
MENLO PARK (CBS SF) — Shots rang out for the second time in two weeks Saturday on a residential block in Menlo Park.
Officers were called just before 8 a.m. Saturday to a report of gunshots fired in the 300 block of Ivy Drive, police said.
Police arriving on the scene found that about 12 rounds had been fired at a house. People inside the home at the time of the shooting were not injured.
Police said that according to witnesses, two suspects pulled up in front of the home, got out of the car and fired at the house. The pair then got back into the car and drove away.
The vehicle, which was last seen heading east on Almanor Avenue from Ivy Drive, was described as a light-colored American-made car, according to police.
Although the gunfire occurred in the same block were a 42-year-old Newark man was fatally shot on Nov. 18, police say that they have not determined whether the two incidents are connected.
The Saturday morning shooting is under investigation.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Menlo Park police at (650) 330-6300. Those who prefer to remain anonymous may call the police tip line at (650) 330-6395.
