Last Monday, June 13, at 9:04 p.m, East Palo Alto Police received a Shotspotter activation on the 1900 block of Manhattan Avenue in East Palo Alto. Officers found a shooting victim near the alley between Manhattan and Euclid. He died in the hospital shortly after.  

Two suspects were seen running towards Woodland. 

On Sunday, East Palo Alto officers, SWAT teams from Palo Alto Police, and the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office served two search warrants in East Palo Alto and Palo Alto. 

Two suspects were arrested in connection to Monday’s shooting. A semi-automatic pistol with an extended magazine was also seized from one of the suspect’s homes. 

Both suspects will be booked into the juvenile hall under suspicion of murder. 

The suspects’ names are not released to the public because they are juveniles. 

Evidence is still being gathered, and anyone with information about the incident, contact Acting Commander Angel Sanchez at (650) 853-3154.
