A 27-year-old man died in a shooting in East Palo Alto this afternoon, according to a San Mateo County deputy coroner.
Ronald Ray Davis Jr., an East Palo Alto resident, was pronounced dead at 4:58 p.m. after a shooting in the 300 block of Wisteria Drive, deputy coroner Roger Fielding said. East Palo Alto police Capt. Carl Estelle said the victim appears to have been shot at least 10 times, and that shell casings were found nearby from at least two separate weapons, a rifle and a large-caliber handgun. No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting as of 10:45 p.m., Estelle said. Another shooting was reported in the city several hours after the homicide, and although it occurred nearby, the two incidents appear to be
unrelated, he said. The second shooting was reported shortly after 9:25 p.m. in the 100 block of Lotus Way, according to Estelle. Two victims have been taken to Stanford Hospital in connection with the shooting, Estelle said. He did not know if the victims’ injuries were considered life-threatening. Police have detained two people and a vehicle that were seen leaving the area where the shooting occurred, according to Estelle.
