    Cyclist shoots motorist...

    Bicyclist opens fire, killing one and injuring another

    One man is dead and a woman injured after a bicyclist fired gunshots into the victims' vehicle Friday evening in East Palo Alto.

    Around 6:50 p.m. officers at an East Palo Alto police station heard a vehicle honking repeatedly, according to police, and located it on the side of the police station.

    Police found the female driver and her male front-seat passenger suffering from gunshot wounds. A woman in the back seat was not injured.

    Firefighters were called to the scene to treat the gunshot victims, report police. The passenger, a 42-year-old Palo Alto man, was pronounced dead at the scene, reported police.

    The driver, a 32-year-old woman from Palo Alto was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, according to police.

    She and the uninjured back seat passenger, a 27-year-old San Mateo woman, told officers that a man on a bicycle opened fire as they drove past two men on bikes on Palo Verde Avenue at Bay Road.

    The women, who reportedly came close to colliding with one of the bicyclists, did not know why the cyclist fired at them, police report.

    There was no further description of the suspect.

    The injured driver should be released from the hospital in a day or two, say police.

    You can call me "MTP" if my full screen name grosses you out.

    I'd really like to know...

    ... what happened before the shooting took place. How much the drivers tailgated/tried to push the rider off the road etc. Part of me can sympathize (sp?) with the rider but I don't know the whole story.

    This could have been a real cyclist who'd had enough... or it could be some whacked out person with no real reason for shooting these people... We never know the whole story.

    For example... the "cyclist" could have been someone like this below: (photo taken this morning)

    Thumbs down

    Just because the guy was riding a bike doesn't make him a "bicyclist". Possibly just another useless statistic
