Second shooting in Sunnydale in as many days

Two thugs reportedly shot at a vehicle that contained three people, including a 71-year-old man, in the Sunnydale neighborhood on Tuesday, the second shooting in the area in two days.

The victims, the other two ages 36 and 50, were driving eastbound in the 100 block of Blythedale Avenue, near Santos Street, when they saw two men in their 20s running toward them at about 6:30 p.m., police said.

They “heard a gunshot so they fled the scene,” police said. “Once they were safe [they] exited the vehicle and noticed a bullet hole in the rear driver’s side passenger door.”

No one was injured, and no arrest has been reported as of Wednesday morning.

On Monday, a separate shooting occurred just around the corner from Tuesday’s incident, in the 100 block of Brookdale Avenue. A 46-year-old man who was smoking a cigarette on the porch was shot in the legs and abdomen, police said, but he is expected to survive. It’s not known if the shootings are related.
