Witnesses Sought In Shooting At Shoreline Amphitheatre

UPDATE, Saturday, August 23, 2014.

We can confirm the victim in last night’s shooting, a 38 year-old black male, has died. We are still looking to identify the suspect of the shooting described as a black male in his 20’s with short hair between 5’6″ and 5’8″. At the time of the incident, he was wearing all black and perhaps white pants along with a red baseball cap. The weapon seen in the shooting appears to be a black pistol with a large magazine.

If you have any video or images leading up to the shooting, during and after, we would like to hear from you.

    A review of the city’s permitting process may be in order. While censoring event content is not appropriate, each type of event does have documented propensities for serious issues. Some events have performances that actually encourage violence as a theme.
    As an example: Will the City permit process allow a ‘Rave Hip Hop’ event at Shoreline while recent history shows it will produce a high level of arrests?
    Do our Public Safety officers have input to the permit process?
    Is the City of Mountain View’s permit process driven by Public Safety concerns or other factors?
