Gunshots rang out again in East Palo Alto Sunday night, capping a weekend of gun violence in the city that saw three separate shootings in less than 25 hours, police said.
The latest shots were reported in the 300 block of Wisteria Drive at around 8:30 p.m. just blocks from where a shooting occurred Saturday night, East Palo Alto police said.
Responding officers found a car riddled with bullet holes, but no victim inside. Police later received a call from a local hospital reporting a gunshot victim had arrived seeking medical attention and had a superficial injury to his head.
The shooting was not related to two separate Saturday night shootings in the city, police said.
The first shooting was reported at 7:42 p.m. in the 2100 block of Cooley Avenue and sent one gunshot victim to the hospital. Ten minutes later, officers responded to a shooting in the 100 block of Wisteria Drive that left one man with a bullet wound in his leg. All three shootings are under investigation, police said.
The suspect in Saturday's Cooley Avenue shooting is described as a Hispanic male with a medium build, short black hair and a beard. He reportedly fled in a late model, green four-door Honda.
The suspect in Saturday's Wisteria Drive shooting is described as a thin black male with dreadlocks and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. He may have fled the area in a blue Toyota Supra, police said.
A suspect description was not provided for Sunday night's shooting.
Anyone who may have witnessed the shootings is encouraged to contact Detective Shante Williams at 650-853-3144.
