The corner of Crescent Drive and University Avenue is in Palo Alto - NOT East Palo Alto as the headline suggests.

mustve been a gang. i mean really? i know theres an ikea there but this is why best buy shut down. its too dangerous and a person in the street walking would get shot for wearing nike and their shoes get stolen or someone get shot for wearing red or blue just because they have nothing else to wear.


someday they will have so many colors of gangs, when we wear grey or white we might get shot.'


messed up city

East Palo Alto has many problems with gangs, robbery and shootings. Probably was a crazy person

It says the shot spotter at Kavanaugh Dr detected the shot ... my guess is the victim drove a few more blocks to Palo Alto. If the guy was casually driving down University, wouldn't you expect him to try to get out of there as soon as he could? Crescent Drive in Palo Alto and Kavanaugh in EPA might as well be on different planets.

Crescent Park Neighbor - the man was found in PA & is from PA - but was shot in EPA. Does that now make sense? Maybe he was heading home for help, or toward Stanford Hospital.
