A driver stopped by Palo Alto police Saturday night was found to have been shot moments before in East Palo Alto, but the 22-year-old man's injuries were not life-threatening, East Palo Alto police said.
Police responded to 1620 Bay Road in East Palo Alto at 8:27 p.m. after a ShotSpotter activation, an automated system for detecting gunshots, indicated shots had been fired in the area.
When they arrived, police found evidence of gunshots but no sign of a victim.
Minutes later -- reportedly after a pursuit and traffic stop of a green Camaro by the Palo Alto police -- officers discovered a 22-year-old man driving himself to the hospital with a gunshot wound.
The man, an East Palo Alto resident, told Palo Alto police he had been shot in East Palo Alto. Officers escorted him to Stanford Medical Center
where he was being treated for his injuries Saturday night.
Police said they do not know the motive nor have any suspect information in the shooting at this time. Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call or text 650-409-6792.
