Menlo Park: Shots fired at vehicle occupied by young children, mother

Shots were fired Sunday afternoon at a parked vehicle in Menlo Park occupied by two young children and their mother.

No one was injured, police said.

The vehicle was parked in the 1300 block of Madera Avenue in Belle Haven.

Officers were called at about 2 p.m., and determined that two shots were fired from a black or dark green colored sedan, possibly a Honda, that drove by the parked vehicle.

Witnesses said the car was driving eastbound on the 1300 block of Madera Avenue and was last seen turning southbound onto Hamilton Avenue.

Police asks anyone with information on the shooting to contact the department at (650) 330-6300.

How terrifying for the woman and her children. May the shooters are found and locked away.

police say they ''act in a professional manner'' under any circumstance. oh yeah, like yelling at someone from their squad car. that's right, yelling at someone they don't like for whatever reason. you're just walking down street and cops spot you and start yelling at you angrily as if to say ''how dare your type walk through this town. no one cares? well, people are not going to wait for you,people are going to personally do it themselves .bring criminal cops to justice . you will lose your jobs as cops.

To SteveC: Belle Haven is in the City of Menlo Park! It's embarrassing that your own city council does not give the Belle Haven community the attention they deserve. Those community members are tax payers and don't get any benefits being a part of the City of Menlo Park. The city council members continue to ignore the community members who really need support. Don't blame EPA for your own cities problems.
