East Palo Alto police are still trying to determine a motive in a Tuesday evening shooting that left three city residents suffering from gunshot wounds, a police officer said today.
Officer Veronica Barries said police are on the lookout for a gray, gold or silver Toyota Corolla that might have been the getaway vehicle in the shooting, which took place just after 8 p.m. in the 1000 block of Myrtle Street, near Pulgas Avenue.
The three victims, one a juvenile, all suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital in stable condition. The victims are cooperating with police at this point, Barries said.
A caller reported hearing gunshots at 8:09 p.m., Barries said. Police are still contemplating a motive and whether the incident will be considered gang-related.
"We're still investigating at this point, we're in the preliminary stages and we're not ruling anything out yet," Barries said.
Barries urged anyone with information on this case to contact police dispatch at 650-321-1112; send an anonymous e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or send an anonymous text to 650-409-6792; or leave an anonymous voicemail by calling 650-409-6792.
