East Palo Alto: Two men injured in shooting, no arrests made


Two men were injured in a shooting in East Palo Alto this evening, a police sergeant said.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 2400 block of Illinois Street around 5:35 p.m., police Sgt. Jeff Liu said.

Arriving officers located a 25-year-old Oakland man and 24-year-old San Francisco man both suffering from gunshot wounds, Liu said.

They were both transported to a hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening, according to Liu.

Neither victim was willing to tell officers information on the suspect or suspects, the sergeant said.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call police dispatch at 650-321-1112. Anonymous tips can be left by voicemail or text to 650-409-6792 or email at
