Man, 31, fatally shot in East Palo Alto

Police investigating, but no arrests made yet in homicide

East Palo Alto Police are investigating a shooting that left a 31-year-old city resident dead Sunday night.

The San Mateo County coroner's office identified the man as Jarmal Marquise Magee.

Around 9:30 p.m., officers received a call reporting of shots fired in the 300 block of Wisteria Drive, according to police.

The caller told police they heard shots, followed by someone screaming. Multiple calls to police then came in to report that a person had been shot, police said.

When officers arrived on scene, officers found Magee suffering from gunshot wounds. Emergency crews treated him before transporting him to the hospital, where he died from his injuries, police said in a press release.

Police have identified a possible suspect, but officers have not made any arrests in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the East Palo Alto Police Department's anonymous tip line at 650-409-6792 or 650-853-8477. Anonymous tips can also be sent by email at epa@tipnow.org.

Rest in Peace to you my young friend. It's sad when the neighborhood you call home and should be safe in lets this happen again and again. One of our last conversations was about making sure this didn't happen to you bruh. Remember what I said, ain't too many of us Tru ones left so we gotta be smart and stay out the way. Now you can actually ENJOY that drink with the man up above.
