East Palo Alto police have arrested a suspect in the Sunday morning shooting and killing of a 3-month-old baby on Wisteria Drive.
The arrest, which police plan to discuss at a noon press conference, follows a manhunt that begun shortly after the shooting.
Police said two gunmen opened fire on a vehicle at about 12:50 a.m. Sunday, wounding the boy's parents and killing the baby. The parents, both Redwood City residents, were on their way back from a baby shower at the 400 block of Wisteria Drive when the shooting occurred, acting Capt. Jeff Liu said.
Both parents suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries and were taken to Stanford Hospital. The baby was pronounced dead at about 2:15 a.m., according to police. He was shot in the head, police said.
The couple's 3-year-old son was also in the car. He was reportedly unharmed.
Police are not releasing the names of the parents at this time. They are both 22 years old.
The two gunmen are described as men wearing dark-hooded sweatshirts; they were seen fleeing from the scene, Liu said. The men were specifically firing at the victims' vehicle, he said.
Police Chief Ron Davis announced a $25,000 reward for any information that could lead to the suspects' capture. Police chaplains conducted a vigil on the block where the shooting occurred Sunday afternoon.
Anyone with information about the triple shooting is encouraged to call or send a text message to East Palo Alto police at 650-409-6792.
