Two suspects arrested in shooting at Boys & Girls Club field in East Palo Alto


Police arrested two suspects Friday and are looking for a third person of interest in a shooting at the Boys & Girls Club football field in East Palo Alto earlier this week.

At about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, two men were shot while watching a women's rugby game at the field, located in the 900 block of O'Connor Street.

A 22-year-old man was shot several times in the torso and taken to a local hospital, police said. A 28-year-old was also shot in the lower extremities and took himself to a hospital.
