Shots fired where man was killed

About 12 gunshots were fired Saturday morning, Nov. 24, at a house in the 300 block of Ivy Drive in Menlo Park, police said. The gunfire was in the same block of Ivy Drive where a 42-year-old Newark man was shot and killed Nov. 17.

Also, on Nov. 2, four people were injured in a drive-by shooting near Ivy Drive and Windermere Avenue. In June a shooting on nearby Madera Avenue left 19-year-old Jesus Molina dead.

Police said they did not know yet if the shootings are connected.

In the Nov. 24 shooting, the house was occupied but no one was injured, police said. Witnesses told police that at about 8 a.m., a light-colored American-made car pulled up in front of the house and two men armed with handguns got out of the car and fired at the house. The men, described as black and in their early 20s, got back in the car and fled eastbound on Almanor Avenue.

Police ask anyone with information about the shooting to call Menlo Park police at (650) 330-6300 or an anonymous tip line at (650) 330-6395.
