Getaway vehicle in murder attempt found in Daly City, deputies say


The 2006 green Jaguar station wagon employed as a getaway vehicle by a suspect in an attempted murder in La Honda was found Tuesday morning (March 15) at the Daly City BART station, according to Detective Rebecca Rosenblatt of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The vehicle was unoccupied at the time it was found and is being processed for evidence, Ms. Rosenblatt said.

The shooting on Saturday morning, March 12, in the unincorporated community of La Honda left two men with head and chest wounds. The suspect is still at large, sheriff's officials said.

The victims, a 76-year-old man and a 53-year-old man, were expected to survive their wounds.

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, too, was shot more than once, 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 described 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 fled the scene in the Jaguar station wagon.

Deputies warn that the suspect may be armed and that those who think they see the suspect should 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
