On September 6, 2016, at approximately 6:50m P.m. PDT, reports of shots fired in proximity to Colegrove Street and 36th Avenue, resulted in a murder that led two suspects to a highway chase in San Mateo, California.

According to ‘CBS Local’, “As Police officers arrived at a parking lot located near South El Camino Real, between Colegrove Street and 36th Avenue, an unidentified male victim with apparent gun wounds, was pronounced dead at the scene after several attempts to revive him was performed.”

The San Mateo Police Department quickly determined foul play at the site of the crime, taking into consideration that the location of the incident was visibly isolated.

An unexpected call to the California Highway Patrol Department indicated that a possible speed chase was about to commence after a witness saw two men flee a murder scene in a car that led to a highway in San Mateo.

All identities of the individuals involved have yet to be named. The suspects would have to confirm with police officials if they led their murder victim to the isolated location in San Mateo, California before engaging in a speed highway chase with law enforcement officials,
