Two minors were injured this weekend, a minor was shot and another was stabbed in Redwood City, so the city Police Department is already investigating what happened.
On May 21 at around 8:10 p.m., the Redwood City Police Department responded to a report of a subject who had been shot downtown near 750 Marshall Street.
At the scene, two minors were located with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
One of the minors, a 15-year-old male, suffered a gunshot wound to the upper leg. It appears to have been caused by an accidental self-inflicted discharge as a result of the minor having a firearm at his waist.
The firearm was not recovered and is believed to have been taken from the scene by the minor's companions, who have not yet been identified. However, a 9mm casing was found.
Similarly, another 14-year-old man was found to have a minor stab wound to his upper back.
It is currently being investigated as a separate incident. However, detectives do not rule out any connection between the two events.
The two minors were transported to the hospital for further treatment, authorities said in a statement.
Because the investigation is active, the Redwood City Police Department has asked anyone with any information regarding this case to contact Detective Cagno at 650-780-7669.
