East Palo Alto officers escape injury when someone opens fire on them

 

Two East Palo Alto police officers escaped injury when at least one person shot at them early this morning, police said.

The officers were patrolling the area of Oakwood Drive and Palo Verde Avenue near Cesar Chavez Elementary School around 2:15 a.m. when they responded to a report of multiple gunshots fired in the area, according to police.

While searching the area, someone opened fire on the officers, who narrowly escaped the gunfire, police said.

Police identified the house involved in the incident and detained eight people there. Police Sgt. Jeff Liu said police were still investigating the case this afternoon and were not releasing any names of possible suspects.

East Palo Alto police are encouraging anyone who may have information about the shooting to call them at 650-321-1112 or an anonymous tip line at 650-409-6792.
