On New Year's Eve, our CEO walked across town to the East Palo Alto's 7-11, admiring the fireworks from Whiskey Gulch and listening to the celebratory gunfire with concern.

Justifiably, as one of those gunshots misfired, critically wounding the celebrant.
Sergeant Liu prepared this press release from the East Palo Alto Police Department.
December 31, 2013 – At approximately 9:07 PM, East Palo Alto Police responded to an address on the 900 block of Bay Road for the report of a shooting victim. Police found a 26 year old male East Palo Alto resident suffering from a severe gunshot wound to his head. Paramedics rendered immediate aid to the victim and quickly transported him to a local hospital for additional treatment. At this time, the victim is in critical condition.
DSBE's CEO spoke with a close friend of the 26 year old. He didn't believe his friend had meant to harm himself or anyone else. He'd simply wanted to celebrate the birth of 2014 with his homeboys.
It's hoped and prayed for he'll survive his mistake and in all events be a testament to the importance of properly, which includes soberly, handling firearms.
