Three injured in East Palo Alto shooting Sunday

All victims stable by Monday morning

Police are investigating a Sunday evening shooting in East Palo Alto -- the second this weekend -- that sent three people to the hospital.

Officers responded at 9:25 p.m. to the 2300 block of Palo Verde Avenue and located a 36-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound, according to East Palo Alto police.

Police said they then learned two other shooting victims had been transported to nearby hospitals.

Police said all three victims suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening and were in stable condition as of Monday morning.

A 38-year-old man was also shot just before 3 a.m. on Saturday. The man drove himself to a local hospital where, as of Saturday morning, he was "in stable condition with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds," according to Det. Rod Tuason.

Has the shot spotter lead to any arrests yet? Or only victims?
