Two people who shot at least 43 times into a home are being sought by East Palo Alto police.
Two males exited a truck and riddled the house with bullets on the 2000 block of Glen Way near Donohoe Street/East Bayshore Road. The residents were awakened to the sound of at least two guns rapidly firing multiple times. No one was injured.
Police recovered evidence of 43 gunshots at the scene, with the majority of bullet strikes having hit the garage, where investigators found 10 to 15 holes, Detective Sgt. Angel Sanchez said. A number of bullets pierced windows and walls. Two vehicles were also hit.
Multiple police cars responded rapidly to the scene and searched the area with a K-9 unit, but the shooters appeared to have left in the vehicle, he said.
The volume of the attack is uncommon for a shooting into a dwelling, Sanchez said.
"That's a lot of rounds to be fired into a residence," he said. Usually there is one shooter who fires a few rounds; it isn't common for two persons to be involved, he said.
Police have little information at this time. The shooters are only described as two males who wore hooded sweatshirts. The truck is of an unknown make and model. Police do not have a motive at this time.
A resident at the home said the shooters might have fired at the house mistakenly believing that their target lived there. He said he did not know why the shooters came to the home. Sanchez said the incident does not appear to be associated with gangs.
The East Palo Alto Police Department is asking anyone with information about the incident to call the police or leave a voice message through the anonymous tip line at 650-409-6792, or send an anonymous email to email@example.com.
