Man in intensive care after shooting near Mountain View border

Palo Alto police say man was shot in stomach early Tuesday morning

A man was shot in the stomach while at a south Palo Alto parking lot early Tuesday morning, police said.

The shooting occurred at about 3 a.m. in the 700 block of San Antonio Road, near the Mountain View city line. The victim, an adult male, was shot once in the stomach, according to a Palo Alto Police Department alert.

He was transported by medics to a local hospital and is in intensive care, police said.

Police closed eastbound San Antonio Road between Leghorn Street and East Charleston Road as they investigated the shooting. One eastbound lane was reopened at 7:18 a.m., while the other remains closed as detectives collect evidence, according to a Palo Alto Police Department alert.

This is a developing story. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

Palo Alto Weekly smearing city of Mtn View in a headline which should read "Man in intensive care after shooting in PALO ALTO" It may have happened near Mountain View but was not IN Mountain View, in addition this investigation is under jurisdiction of Palo Alto police. Why give the impression that Mountain View was somehow associated with this crime? Who was the victim, what were his circumstances? Tell us the facts accurately and completely.

I agree, sort of.

It’s not on the old West or, say, the boarder with Mexico so I’m not sure the boarder is relevant at all.

But.... it’s a trivial point.

It appears we need a wall on the Palo Alto border to keep the criminals out. And let's make Palo Alto pay for it.

This man is no longer in critical condition. He died. Very sad & I hope they catch the suspect soon.
