Officers responding to reports of gunfire found a man nearby apparently killed by two gunshots Thursday afternoon, the East Palo Alto Police Department reported.
Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Camellia Drive and Pulgas Avenue just before 5 p.m., according to police.
When they arrived, officers were informed of a possible shooting victim at a residence in the 1400 block of Camellia Drive. Police found a man with two gunshot wounds. They reported that he had no pulse and was not breathing.
Officers attempted to resuscitate the victim until Menlo Park Fire Department officials arrived and pronounced him dead.
Investigators later found a small red sedan that had been stolen from Redwood City and may have been driven by the suspected shooters, three black men in their early 20s wearing black clothing, police said.
