As he left the party, which was being held in the home's backyard, shots were fired and he was hit by at least one bullet, she said.
Officers found the man in front of the house and administered first-aid and CPR. Paramedics with the Menlo Park Fire Protection District and the ambulance company AMR administered life-saving measures but he was unresponsive, police said. He was taken to Stanford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Partygoers said they heard the shots and ran to the front of the house. Some reported seeing a vehicle leaving the scene but were unable to provide a detailed description of it, Ms. Ackley said.
Police said they have confirmed that Mr. Molina was a member of a gang, but are still investigating whether the shooting was gang-related.
No arrests have been made.
Police ask anyone with information about the case to call the police at (650) 330-6300.
