Car stolen after La Honda shootings recovered
A station wagon was found abandoned at the Daly City BART station Monday morning after it was stolen by an intruder who shot two La Honda residents when they caught him in their home on Saturday, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspect in the shooting remains at large, sheriff’s officials said.
He was discovered by the homeowner while leaving a home in the area of Mindego Hill and Alpine roads at about 7:15 a.m. Saturday. When the homeowner confronted the intruder, he shot the homeowner in the head and chest, according to the sheriff’s office.
The homeowner’s tenant then came outside and the intruder shot him in the head and chest as well. The homeowner ran to a neighbor’s house to call for help as the suspect drove away in the homeowner’s 2006 Jaguar station wagon, sheriff’s officials said.
Both the homeowner and his tenant — ages 76 and 53 — were taken to a hospital and are expected to survive their injuries.
The suspect was described as a white man in his late 20s to early 30s. He stands about 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall, has a medium build and was wearing a white tank top, dark pants and possibly a baseball cap during the shooting.
Anyone who spots the suspect has been asked not to approach him and to call 911. Anyone with information about the shooting has been asked to contact Detective Joe Cang at (650) 259-2417 or an anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
