Drive-by shooting wounds two in Menlo Park

Both victims recovering

Gunfire shattered a quiet Sunday morning in Menlo Park along Sevier Avenue around 10 a.m. on Nov. 13.

Police said they arrived within one minute of a 911 call to find two people shot after a light-colored, older sedan cruised the street carrying a passenger firing 40 caliber bullets. The car fled southbound on Ivy Drive.

One victim, an 18-year-old man, had multiple gunshot wounds and investigators believe he was the primary target, according to Sgt. Matthew Ortega.

A 50-year-old woman was also shot once as she got out of her car at the corner of Sevier Avenue and Newbridge Street.

"She was in the wrong place at the wrong time," Sgt. Ortega said.

Both victims are recovering after receiving medical care.

Investigators continue to piece together possible motivations for the shooting. No description of the shooter was available yet.
