Police detain one in connection to shooting

A man sent to prison last year on methamphetamine charges was arrested this week on parole violations and is considered a “person of interest” in a shooting that sent two people to the hospital Sunday, said San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Marc Alcantara.


Domingo Molina, Jr., 23, was arrested Tuesday for violating terms of his parole. He is being questioned in relation to the Sunday shootings, but is not charged with a crime related to that case, Alcantara said. Molina was sentenced to 16 months in prison on methamphetamine and gang changes in March 2006.


Deputies were dispatched around to the 200 block of Second Avenue, in unincorporated Redwood City, at 8 p.m. Sunday.


Officers found three victims suffering from gunshot wounds, Alcantara said.

Two victims were taken to Stanford Medical Center, and the third had such minor injuries that he refused medical treatment, Alcantara said.   


The Sheriff’s Office is also investigating the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Taaniela Loni Maama, an East Palo Alto man who was shot Sept. 20 in the North Fair Oaks neighborhood. That investigation is ongoing and detectives are in the process of interviewing approximately 25 witnesses, Alcantara said.
