Three people were injured in an East Palo Alto shooting Friday night, the second in as many days to leave multiple victims hospitalized.

East Palo Alto residents Charles Dyer, 45, Michelle Curry, 36, and Katunga Nunn, 37, were in stable condition at a local hospital following a shooting reported at 8:30 p.m. near One Stop Market at 1493 E. Bayshore Road, according to East Palo Alto police.

Dyer was wounded in the right foot, Nunn in the back, and Curry in the lower back and right arm after occupants of a sliver Pontiac van with tinted windows reportedly opened fire on the 1400 block of E. Bayshore Road, police said.

Officers at the scene found up to 20 bullet shell casings from three different caliber weapons at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and E. Bayshore Road, police said. Dyer reported to police that fled the scene and collapsed in Bell Street until he was able to get help from a citizen who called 911 at about 12:40 a.m. Saturday.

In a separate incident on Thursday night, a 23-year-old woman and a 6-year-old girl were wounded at about 7:10 p.m. when a man opened fire on their vehicle while it was stopped at the intersection of Bell Street and University Avenue, according to police.

There are no suspects in either case at this time.

Anyone who may have information regarding the shootings is asked to contact police Detective Angel Sanchez at (650) 853-3144 or the East Palo Alto Police Anonymous Tip Line at (650) 851-8477.
