Police today are still investigating a shooting outside a Foster City apartment complex Friday night and said one of two victims has already been released from the hospital.The shooting was reported at about 11:50 p.m. in the 600 block of Catamaran Street. Officers arrived to find two men, ages 30 and 31, suffering from gunshot wounds to the left sides of their torsos in the parking lot of the Beach Cove Apartments.Both victims were taken to an area hospital for treatment. One has since been released, and the other remained hospitalized today but is expected to survive, Foster City police Capt. John Froomin said.Witnesses at the scene — including the victims, three of their friends, and the suspect, 39-year-old Jesse Wilson — have given varying accounts of how the shooting occurred, according to Froomin.Police have determined, however, that prior to the shooting, the two victims and their three female friends were launching small boats into a nearby lagoon and were laughing when one of the boats capsized.Wilson then came out of a nearby apartment. It appears he asked the boaters to be quiet, and some sort of confrontation followed, Froomin said.According to the victims, Wilson pointed a gun at them, and a scuffle among the victims and Wilson followed that ended in the two victims being shot.Another statement indicates Wilson shot the first victim from a distance, and the second victim rushed to Wilson to try to subdue him, at which point the second victim was shot.The victims and three females then went to try to find help, and they met up with officers in the parking lot where police had responded, Froomin said.After rendering aid to the victims, the officers searched for Wilson and found him in an apartment nearby.Froomin said the officers contacted Wilson, who cooperated with authorities and was taken into custody. Wilson was taken to an area hospital for treatment to facial injuries he sustained during the struggle, and he was expected to be booked into jail upon his release. The shooting remains under investigation.
