Suspect Wanted For Attempted Murder in Millbrae

A 16-year-old South San Francisco girl was injured in a drive-by shooting on Saturday night.

The suspect for an attempted murder in Millbrae is still outstanding, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

At 10:25 p.m. Saturday, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call of shots fired in the vicinity of the 600 block of Santa Teresa Way in Millbrae, according to Dep. Rebecca Rosenblatt, a public information officer for the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Upon arrival, deputies learned a group of teenagers had been hanging out in that location when a dark colored sedan drove by them, rolled down the windows, and started shooting at them.

The suspect vehicle then sped off southbound on Santa Teresa Way, then westbound on Park Blvd.

Of all the teenagers present, only one female, 16, sustained any gunshot wounds and she was subsequently transported to the hospital for treatment.

The victim, who is from South San Francisco, is said to be in stable condition at the time.

Deputies are encouraging 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.

Drive-by shooting? did not expect this to happen in Millbrae. I hope the girl is ok. I wonder if the kids hanging out that night attends Cap High School? If so, is the school working with the police to dig deeper? Hope to read more, a follow piece??

This incident took place around the block from the high school in a residential neighborhood. It was not close to being on campus. The high school was still on their winter break.

Residents are concerned. Where is the press conference from the Millbrae Division of the Sheriff's Office? Was this a random act of violence???? Our small city police department would have responded to the community already. I guess that's what you get when you bring in the Sheriff's Office.

Our former department of revolving door Chiefs and an unstable future for career of the officers would of done what you feel is appropriate. The Sheriffs office has been investigating shootings on a regular basis in areas of San Mateo County much more violent than Millbrae - These other communities experience violent acts to a higher degree than Millbrae - the Dectective Bureau of the Sheriffs office has far more resources than the former Millbrae detective bureau - I am pleased that the Millbrae City Council saved money and improved services by entrusting our police services to the Sheriffs Office

Mike, The biggest mistake any city does is disconnect itself from the community by bringing in the Sheriffs, Having the Sheriffs has major benefits due to all the resources they can afford to have. But resources is only something your city will gain. It will lose or have lost the officers that would have a vested interest in the city. I'm sure many of the former police officers were from or lived around the community. That's something more valuable then resources. I do Believe the Sheriffs will solve this shooting a lot quicker. And since this is not a high crime area where gangs are fighting other gang for this territory. It is my opinion that this is South San Francisco crime being brought to Millbrae by youth who should be at home in South San Francisco at 1030pm.

Concerned Taxpayer, the "savings" look good now, just wait until the first or second contract renewal comes up...$$$... The Sheriff's office is contracting their services to make money in the long-run. Just like any other service contract, the rates look very good during the first term. Also, I hope Millbrae never wants to go back to their own city police agency. It would cost a few Million dollars to start over again...$$$...

At least One of the Officers who responded from the Sheriffs dept. was a former Millbrae police officer. It was nice to see a familiar face. San Bruno Police Dept could not be praised enough for their fast response and extended support. Maguire Park Place.

Alfonso, until you know the facts DON'T ASSUME!!! She is a very well behaved teenager who was simply hanging out with friends. She's NOT in any gangs or associated with any. So for you to say something stupid like, "this is a south San Francisco crime being brought to millbrae by youth who should be home by 10:30" is REALLY out of line. You really make me mad. You don't even care how she's doing. You ever herd the saying, being in the wrong place at the wrong time?? Try NOT assuming in the future. SHHESH
Alfonso Esqueda January 10, 2013 at 05:43 PM
Be Nice, you are absolutley correct. I hope she will be fine and recover normally.
