Authorities said they have located the car seen speeding away from the scene in Monday’s triple homicide near Redwood City and said they know the driver of the getaway car.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said it is searching for 22-year-oldJuan Manuel Montero Nambo, aka “Gasolina,” after they were able to find and impound the light blue Honda seen quickly fleeing a home on 512 Stanford Ave. in the unincorporated North Fair Oaks neighborhood at a high rate of speed.
Jorge Guzman Reynaga, 26, who lived in the single-family house there, was found shot to death in the home’s driveway that afternoon. Investigators on Wednesday had still not identified the other two victims, aged 25 to 30, who were both found shot to death inside the home.
Sheriff’s detectives, using information from a witness, found the Honda in Atherton on Tuesday evening, said Lt. Marc Alcantara. The car was seen leaving the Stanford Avenue home right after the shooting, with two female Hispanic passengers and what police now believe to be Nambo as the driver.
Authorities do not know where Nambo is or whether he was injured during the melee, however. They are also not yet calling Nambo a suspect in the shooting but believe he was at the house during the attack.
The county’s forensics laboratory, meanwhile, isprocessing the Honda for evidence.
Investigators still believe the triple homicide was not a random act and was most likely the result of a home invasion robbery, Alcantara said. The possibilities that gang activity or drug dealing was involved in the shooting have not been ruled out, he said.
Guns and expended ammunition were found in the home, but Alcantara would not say how many guns they located or whether drugs were found inside the home.
