Two juveniles have been arrested in connection with a shooting that injured a 19-year-old victim at a Redwood City apartment complex late last month, police said.
The suspects, whose identities are not being released because they are minors, were arrested on Friday, Sept. 3, following an investigation that included carrying out a search warrant at a home in Menlo Park, police said.
The incident unfolded about 7:35 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 26, when police were dispatched to the 1500 block of Hudson Street after a resident reported his neighbor had been shot. Responding officers located the victim, who had suffered a gunshot wound to the upper torso, and provided medical aid that “ultimately contributed to the victim’s survival,” police said.
“Initial reports indicated the victim left an apartment to go downstairs, and was shot by an unknown suspect in the carport of the apartment complex,” police said. “Witnesses stated the suspect fled the scene in a black four door sedan, later determined to be a Volkswagen Jetta.”
Later that day, SWAT teams from the Redwood City Police Department and San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, along with Menlo Park police, collaborated to serve a search warrant in the 100 block of Hamilton Street in Menlo Park, where electronics and several firearms were seized. The investigation led to the identification of the juvenile suspects, “who conspired to commit the crime,” police said.
A Redwood City police surveillance operation preceded the suspects’ arrests on suspicion of attempted murder on Sept. 3, police said.
Anyone that may have additional information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Kyle Trinh at 650-780-7620, or the Redwood City Police Department’s tip line at 650-780-7110.
