San Mateo, CA – On Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 3:04 p.m., San Mateo Police officers were called to a report of a person requesting medical assistance at the 1000 block of College Avenue.  Upon arrival, officers located a 27-year-old male victim, who was suffering from a gunshot wound. 
As the incident rapidly evolved, SMPD launched an investigation.  Detectives learned that three adult male suspects arrived near the 1000 block of College Avenue and waited for the victim to return to his residence.  When the victim arrived, the suspects rushed towards the victim and pistol whipped him while attempting to force their way into the residence.  A second victim, who was inside the residence, heard the disturbance and ran from the suspects.  However, the suspects entered the residence and shot him as he was fleeing the scene. 
The San Mateo Police Department continues to investigate this attempted homicide and home invasion.  SMPD seeks to identify the persons seen on video. Anyone with information is urged to contact the police immediately.  The suspects are described as three adult males wearing all black clothing and masks.  They fled the scene in a black 2007-2012 Lexus LS460 sedan
