A 19-year-old Menlo Park resident was found with at least one gunshot wound in the 1300 block of Madera Avenue in Menlo Park Saturday morning and was later pronounced dead at Stanford Hospital, police said.

there was some guys driving around in a black suburban truck yelling insults out the window. could have been white or hispanic, but NOT black. sometimes criminals drive nice looking vehicles. its not always ''bums'' or black people that are criminals.

Lots of mysterious shadows on the streets at night, have to walk on the street where there's more light..
