The article identifies the victim as from East Palo Alto, but did not say which "city" the incident happened. It just says "a night of illegal July 4 celebratory fireworks throughout the city". I thought it was in Palo Alto, but Google maps indicated different.

The description under the "headline" says that it's in East Palo Alto. You must have missed that.
