Shooting on Westwood Drive

At 9:03 p.m. on Nov. 24, a 22-year-old man was shot multiple times in the area of Westwood Drive and Driftwood Terrace.  

The victim said the attack was “completely unprovoked” and could offer no suspect information. Gilroy Police temporarily closed First Street and Westwood Drive Saturday night to investigate the scene and allow an air ambulance to land to take the victim to the hospital. 

At the hospital, the victim underwent an emergency surgery and was brought to a stable condition. 

Police found multiple shell casings on Westwood Drive. A witness described the suspect as a male, approximately 5′ 10″ and 170 pounds. The suspect fled in an unknown vehicle, which was occupied by at least one other person. 

At this time officers are still investigating this incident and have not ruled out that the shooting may be gang related.
