DA holding off on charges in weekend attempted murder
August 28, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

The District Attorney’s Office is holding off on charging an 18-year-old man with attempted murder for the early morning Sunday shooting of a man in a San Mateo neighborhood.

Prosecutors want further investigation by San Mateo police before deciding whether to charge Enoc Carlos Gonzalez, Assistant District Attorney Al Serrato said.

Gonzalez was released from custody Wednesday.

San Mateo police confirmed it is continuing the investigation after unearthing evidence that the victim was complicit in the initial confrontation that happened just before the shooting.

Gonzalez, of East Palo Alto, was arrested Aug. 24, the same day police responded to calls of shots in the vicinity of South Grant Street. Police found a 22-year-old San Mateo man suffering from life-threatening gunshot wounds to his upper body. The North County Regional SWAT Team later arrested Gonzalez at a residence on North Claremont Street.

Police released few other details about the crime but said it appeared to likely be a confrontation of two rival gangs.

San Mateo police said yesterday that Gonzalez was confirmed as being involved in the pre-shooting altercation with the victim and likely armed with a handgun. The ongoing investigation will include forensic testing of evidence at the crime scene, police said in a prepared statement.

The investigation will also aim to arrest all other individuals involved, police said.

Anyone with further information should contact the San Mateo Police Department at 522-7650 or the Secret Witness Line at 522-7676.
