KING CITY — King City Police Department is asking for the community’s help in finding a suspect vehicle that was involved in a shooting early Saturday morning.

Local officers as well as personnel from the Soledad and Greenfield police departments and Monterey County Sheriff’s Office responded to the report of gunshots on April 30 at about 4:10 a.m. in the 300 block of N. San Lorenzo St. in King City. 

A man reported that multiple suspects “began shooting at him” when he arrived home, police said. No one was injured in the shooting, but multiple vehicles and residences were struck by the gunfire.

When the shooting stopped, the suspects fled the area in what is believed to be a darker color Honda traveling east on Collins Street.

“As the suspect vehicle fled the area, the suspect vehicle encountered a patrol vehicle responding to the scene and attempted to ram it,” police said. “The officer avoided the collision and attempted to apprehend the vehicle but was unsuccessful.”

King City Police Department is asking residents and businesses in the area to review their camera security systems to determine if footage of the suspect vehicle exists between the hours of 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.

Anyone with additional information related to the case is encouraged to call KCPD at  831-385-4848 or Sgt. John Dow at 831-386-5969 or the WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME. Video footage may also be sent via email to [email protected].
