A male suspect fired a gun at someone who had tried to intervene as the suspect was rummaging through the bed of a pickup truck in Menlo Park late Tuesday night, police said.
No one was injured in the shooting reported at 11:12 p.m. Tuesday in the 1100 block of Willow Road, where someone had been seen lurking around an apartment parking lot.

The suspect fled and remains at large. He is described as a heavy-set juvenile male who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and possibly of Pacific Islander ethnicity, police said.
