A 27-year-old man being treated at Stanford Hospital said he was the victim of a drive-by shooting Friday night in the area of Bayfront Expressway and University Avenue, according to Menlo Park police.
The man told police he was driving near the intersection when he was shot at several times by occupants of another vehicle, police said in a statement.
The man's injuries were not life-threatening, and two passengers in his vehicle were not injured, police said.
The other vehicle was described as a small, four-door, silver or gray sedan.

Soon thereafter, they learned the injured man had arrived at Stanford Hospital with a gunshot wound, and that he had been the driver of the abandoned vehicle.
