We've known for sometime that B'game is a sort of "border" community between northern gangs (San Bruno, Daly City, etc) and southern gangs (San Mateo, EPA, etc). In addition, some of the gang orientation is racially divided (Latino, Pacific Islander, etc). Here is an excerpt from a notice from the San Mateo police:
On February 5th, 2015 at about 6:30PM, SMPD responded to a report of possible gunfire in the area of North Idaho Street and Bayswater Avenue. Officers arrived on scene and located evidence that a handgun had been fired multiple times from the intersection towards the 900 block of North Idaho Street. SMPD Officers were able to quickly locate and account for the rounds that were fired and confirm that nobody was hit by the gunfire, but determined bullets had struck 3 separate unoccupied vehicles.
We still believe this case to be gang related and not a random act of violence based on the specific location of this incident. SMPD Officers will also continue to conduct high profile patrol of known gang members and their associates and take lawful enforcement action whenever and wherever possible.
SMPD urges anyone in our community with information that may assist in this investigation to please contact SMPD at #(650) 522-7700 or call the Crime Reduction Unit at (650) 522-7784. Witnesses or persons with information may also contact the SMPD Secret Witness Line, #(650) 522-7676 or report a tip online at http://tinyurl.com/SMPDTips
I've had a quick conversation with the SMPD since the intersection we are talking about is where Nini's Cafe is located and is practically in B'game. As the notice indicates, SMPD is sure it was neither random nor related to the drive-by shooting on the Peninsula Ave. overpass this week. They have good leads and are always looking for more. Please be awake out there.
