Teen injured in Wednesday night in East Palo Alto shooting after morning homicide

A teenager was killed and another injured in separate shootings in East Palo Alto on Wednesday, police said.

The latest shooting victim is 18-year-old Tywaun Livingston, of East Palo Alto, who was shot while walking with a friend in the 100 block of Verbena Drive shortly after 9 p.m., police said.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the torso and asked a friend to drive him to the hospital, according to police.

Police stopped the car and found that Livingston was in possession of a handgun. He was treated for his wound at the scene then taken to Stanford Hospital by ambulance.

Livingston is expected to survive. The friend who was walking with him was not injured, police said.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that the shooting was connected to the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man on Gonzaga Street earlier in the day.

Police were alerted to that shooting at 11:50 a.m. by the city’s ShotSpotter gunshot detection system.

The victim, who had been shot multiple times, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police increased patrols after the killing, and the officers who stopped the car that contained Livingston were part of the beefed-up police presence.

Investigators are seeking witnesses to both shootings. Anyone with information is asked to call or text the East Palo Alto Police Department at (650) 409-6792. Email tips can be sent to epa@tipnow.org.
