Sheriff’s investigators in Half Moon Bay continue to search for a suspect on a green bike who fled the scene of a shooting that left one man injured Sunday afternoon. Deputies responded to reports that five or six shots had been fired in the 200 block of Grove Street at about 4:45 p.m., according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
Arriving deputies found Jose Monroy, 29, of Half Moon Bay, at the west end of Magnolia Street. Deputies said that Monroy was intoxicated and uncooperative. The victim claimed he had sprained his ankle until deputies noticed blood coming out of a hole in his shoe and determined he had been shot in the foot.
Monroy was arrested for public intoxication and taken to Stanford Medical Center, according to the sheriff’s office. A witness told investigators that the suspected shooter was a Hispanic male in his early 20s who lived in the immediate area.
Deputies detained two men in a Black Ford Mustang that matched the description of a vehicle leaving the area of the shooting, but the men were later released due to insufficient evidence linking them to the crime.
