Shooting wounds 17-year-old boy in Menlo Park

 

For the second time in one week, Menlo Park police are investigating a shooting.

A caller reported gunfire around 6:25 p.m. on Thursday (Dec. 22)in the 1400 block of Plumas Avenue. When police arrived, they found a 17-year-old boy shot, according to reports. He was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses described the suspects as two Hispanic men driving a white compact vehicle west on Plumas Avenue, police said.

The shooting comes four days after police responded to a report of a group of men standing around with guns outside a house on Hollyburne Avenue on Dec. 18. During that call, officers were shot at, and one officer returned fire.

That investigation led to a police chase in Mountain View on Dec. 21: The suspect, a parolee, slipped away despite the attentions of helicopters, United States marshals, and both Menlo Park and Mountain View police

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the police at 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 330-6395.
