23-year-old man killed in Redwood City shooting

The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office is “actively working” an investigation into a fatal shooting late Thursday night in unincorporated Redwood City, Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Marc Alcantara said today.

Karen Rodgers, a management analyst with the San Mateo County coroner's office said the victim, Taaniela Loni Maama, 23, of East Palo Alto, was pronounced dead at Stanford Medical Center at 10:14 p.m.

Alcantara declined to discuss the exact location of the shooting, citing an active investigation.

“There was a shooting,” Alcantara said, adding, “It's not a random act.”

“We're actively working the case as we speak,” Alcantara said.

The sheriff's office has not yet taken any suspect or suspects into custody, Alcantara said.
