Police investigating drive-by shootings in Belle Haven

by Sandy Brundage

It was not just another Friday night in Menlo Park. Gunshots punctured a quiet evening in Belle Haven, leaving four wounded.

A flurry of 911 calls around 8:05 p.m. alerted police to multiple shots fired near Ivy Drive and Windermere Avenue on Nov. 2. Officers found four adult victims — two were in good condition, one in serious condition and one in critical condition — who were taken to Stanford Hospital for treatment.

A black Honda and a black Acura were seen fleeing north on Ivy Drive, according to police. No suspect descriptions or theories as to motive have been released by investigators.

"We are not releasing the types of weapons used at this time, since we are still investigating. As far as the victims, three have been released from the hospital and one is still there in stable condition. We have no further information at this time," Police Commander Dave Bertini said on Monday afternoon.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call police at 330-6300.
