Officers responded to an activation of the Shot Spotter system that detected multiple gunshots in the 2100 block of Cooley Avenue at about 9:05 p.m., according to East Palo Alto police Sgt. Jeff Liu.
Arriving officers found a 30-year-old East Palo Alto man who had been shot in the torso several times, police said.
The victim was taken to a hospital and was reported to be in serious but stable condition.
A preliminary investigation revealed the man had been standing in his driveway when a silver or gray sedan drove up and stopped, police said.
Someone fired several shots from inside the car, which drove off on Cooley Avenue.
Anyone who might have witnessed the shooting is asked to contact East Palo Alto police at (650) 321-1112.
