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.
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.
