A Menlo Park man was wounded in a shooting in East Palo Alto Sunday night. Officers were called around 8:15 p.m. Sunday after the city’s ShotSpotter gunshot detection system alerted them to shots fired in the 2200 block of Addison Avenue, police said. Police arriving on the scene located the victim, a 49-year-old man, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his extremities.

He was taken to a local hospital to be treated. An update on his condition was not immediately available. According to police, the man was shot while sitting in his parked vehicle. Investigators believe that one or more suspects may have approached the vehicle on foot and shot the man, then fled immediately, police said.
