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
