Mountain View police are investigating a shooting at Rengstorff Park Wednesday afternoon, according to a news release from the agency.

Officers responded around 1 p.m. to reports of hearing a gunshot at the park, in the 200 block of Rengstorff Avenue. Two victims were found to be suffering minor injuries, with one taken to a hospital for treatment. Both victims are expected to fully recover.

They described the suspect as a "Hispanic adult man between 20 and 30 years old with a slim build, roughly 5 feet 8 inches in height. He was seen wearing a gray shirt and black pants," according to the news release.

No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting.

I am glad the victims are OK. Is there any connection to the nearby homeless encampment on Cristanto?

Hi Concerned,

I wonder if you've noticed any parallel between your "just asking questions" about a group you're wary of, and the questions often asked by racists about the ethnicity of alleged criminals. If you haven't noticed, many of us most assuredly have.

You mean those RVs on Cristiano? Those ARE their homes...
First the shots fired at Villa/Escuela, now this. Are we going back to the bad old days?
