What about all of the shots heard lately in East Palo Alto, that seem to be from both sides of the freeway? Are they related?

Thanks for reporting on what happened. I was riding home to Menlo Park last night around 8pm from a meeting in East Palo Alto and Belle Haven was cordoned off at Willow with police cars at every entrance.

Although the police presence kept me from getting to a friend's home last night, I want to express my appreciation to the Menlo Park police for being responsive to this matter.
