According to Detective Sgt. Steve Blanc, the department said the suspects may be involved in gang activity.

Both men are described as Hispanic males between 25 and 30 years of age. They fled the scene in a black 1980s model Buick Grand National and a metallic gray 1960s Mercury Cougarconvertible.

The victim was released after being treated at an unidentified local hospital.

Anyone with information on the shooting is encouraged to call Detective Mark Pollio at (650) 780-7133.
