ORIGINAL MESSAGE

HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION

Tonight at just before 7pm SMPD officers were advised of a shooting incident to the rear of the 3500 block of South El Camino Real, in a parking lot. Officers quickly arrived and located a 31 year-old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Medical aid was immediately started, however despite lifesaving efforts, the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene. The crime scene remains active as detectives and officers develop additional information. 

With the assistance of the California Highway Patrol, a possible suspect vehicle was pursued at high speeds North on 280 to 380, and then North on 101 to San Francisco. Officers were able to stop and safely detain two subjects (driver and passenger) near Market St. and Octavia in San Francisco. SMPD can confirm that the pursuit is related to this investigation, as involved officers and detectives continue to pursue leads, assisted by local agencies. 

This appears to have been an isolated incident, and not a random act. SMPD officers and detectives continue to pursue leads. This is an active investigation, and there is no further available information at this time. SMPD will provide an update as soon as we are able. 

Anyone who may have information that may help in this case is asked to please contact Detective Nick Ryan at (650) 522-7670 or call the SMPD Secret Witness Line at (650)522-7676.
