Search Continues for Millbrae Shooting Suspect

The suspect involved in a drive-by shooting Jan. 5 is still unknown.

Police are still searching for a suspect involved in a drive-by shooting in Millbrae on Jan. 5 that left a 16-year-old female injured.

No arrests have been made and the suspect’s whereabouts is still unknown, according to Dep. Rebecca Rosenblatt, public information officer with the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office. Deputies only have slightly more information regarding the shooting — that the suspect vehicle is thought to be an American-made dark-colored sedan without rims, Rosenblatt said.

Around 10:25 p.m. Jan. 5, deputies responded to a drive-by shooting in the 600 block of Santa Teresa Way in Millbrae. A suspect in a dark-colored sedan drove by a group of teenagers and started shooting at them, Millbrae Patch reported. The suspect fled off in the vehicle going southbound on Santa Teresa Way, then westbound on Park Boulevard, according to previous reports.

A 16-year-old female from South San Francisco sustained gunshot wounds.

As for whether or not deputies believe the shooting was a random act of violence or possibly gang related, Rosenblatt said that is still under investigation. 

Deputies encourage anyone with information about the crime to call Detective Matthew Broad at 650-363-4363 or the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 800-547-2700.

In my day a vehicle "without rims" would not move.

More descriptive information would help. Were the windows tinted? What caliber of gun? Etc... A scary reminder that Millbrae isn't as safe as it appears...
