A man fatally shot in East Palo Alto Wednesday night has been identified as 20-year-old Gabriel Arreguin, a police captain said today.
Arreguin, an East Palo Alto resident, was shot at the corner of Jasmine and Daphne ways at about 9:30 p.m., East Palo Alto police Capt. Carl Estelle said.
After the shooting, someone in a car picked up Arreguin and put him in the backseat, Estelle said. The motorist then drove about 100 yards down Jasmine Way before flagging down an officer.
Arreguin was transported to Stanford Hospital where he was pronounced dead, Estelle said. He is the city's third homicide victim this year. At this time last year, there had also been three homicides in East Palo Alto.
Estelle said this afternoon that a motive for the shooting hasn't been established, and no suspects have been arrested.
