Menlo Park police

On December 29, 2019 at approximately 8:38 pm, Menlo Park Police Officers responded to the 1100 block of Hollyburne Avenue in Menlo Park on a report of gunfire. Upon arrival, officers located a dog suffering from a gunshot wound being tended to by its owner. The owner advised police that an unknown Hispanic male, in his late teens or early 20s and wearing a black hooded jacket and dark colored pants, had ridden by his residence on a dark colored mountain bike.

The fired round struck the dog in the shoulder area, injuring him. The suspect then fled the area on his bicycle and was last seen riding northbound on Pierce Road.
