A Menlo Park man was wounded in a shooting in East Palo Alto Sunday night.
Officers were called around 8:15 p.m. Sunday after the city's ShotSpotter gunshot detection system alerted them to shots fired in the 2200 block of Addison Avenue, police said.
Police arriving on the scene located the victim, a 49-year-old man, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his extremities.
He was taken to a local hospital to be treated. An update on his condition was not immediately available.
According to police, the man was shot while sitting in his parked vehicle.
