La Honda: Suspect at large in attempted murder of two

 

By Bay City News Service

A suspect in a shooting Saturday morning in the unincorporated San Mateo County community of La Honda that left two men with head and chest wounds is still at large, sheriff's officials said.

The victims, a 76-year-old man and a 53-year-old man, are expected to survive.

Deputies were called around 7:15 a.m. to the area of Mindego Hill and Alpine roads on a report of two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

One of the victims, a homeowner, was shot multiple times after confronting a man he saw leaving his home, according to sheriff's officials. The homeowner's tenant came out of the home and he was shot multiple times, deputies said.

The homeowner made it to a neighbor's house and called for help. Deputies and paramedics arrived, and the men were taken to a hospital.

Deputies are describing the suspect as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall with a medium build. He was wearing a green jacket and white tank top with dark-colored pants and a baseball cap.

The suspect was last seen driving from the scene in the homeowner's vehicle, a green 2006 Jaguar station wagon with California license plate No. 7LWV742.

Deputies warn that the suspect may be armed and those who see the suspect or the vehicle to keep their distance and call 911.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Joe Cang at (650) 259-2417 or send an email to jcang@smcgov.org.

The phone number for the anonymous tip line is (800) 547-2700.
