UPDATE, TUESDAY, MAY 18 — San Mateo police say they have arrested two 16-year-olds in connection with the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old man in a car parked in the lot of the San Mateo Adult School, 789 E. Poplar Ave. in San Mateo.

The victim has been identified by the coroner as Ashly Tianson, 19, of Daly City. His family has set up a GoFundMe site to cover his funeral expenses. His family called him Ashly “A.T.” Yhuky.

“Yhuky was a special young man with a positive attitude,” his family wrote on the GoFundMe site. “He made sure to light up your day with his contagious laugh and smile. He was selfless and generous — spending his paycheck on others before he spent it on himself. When our dad lost his car, Yhuky gladly gave him his without even being asked. He was comforting, protecting, and always made sure to express his feelings towards his loved ones.”

“Yhuky graduated from high school just last year and had his whole life ahead of him,” they wrote. “He had plans to join the Army but decided to stay and help pay for household expenses.”

He leaves behind a mother, a father and three siblings.

Police said that a round-the-clock investigation led them to identify a suspect in San Jose, a 16-year-old, who was arrested Saturday and booked into Hillcrest Juvenile Hall.

Detectives found a second suspect, also 16, in San Mateo, who was arrested Monday. This suspect was also sent to Hillcrest.

Then detectives executed search warrants at residences in Menlo Park and San Mateo. Evidence collected as a result of these search warrants is being analyzed and processed, police said.

SATURDAY, MAY 15 — Police say a 19-year-old man was shot and killed in the driver’s seat of a car parked in the lot of the San Mateo Adult School at 789 E. Poplar Ave. in San Mateo.

At 9 p.m. Friday (May 14), officers found the victim suffering from a shot to the abdomen. He was rushed to a hospital but succumbed to his injuries, police said.

  1. Used to be a story would tell you all you need to know. What color were the suspects? When did it become taboo to give those details?

      • Early on, those with the least amount of resources were racist, tribal and obsessed with phenotypes because it benefitted them to deprive other groups of resources. The primative human survival instinct to subjugate and oppress others would increase their own access to those resources. They also have an edge to actually commit genocide against entire populations. They search for justification to withdraw empathy or compassion toward other groups. They attach negative behavior toward an entire group of people, rather than the individual without self-reflection. They act with benevolence within their own group and with heartless cruelty toward others based on skin color / ethnicity. In other words, racism is a symptom of psychological sickness. It is a sign of a lack of psychological integration, a lack of self-esteem and inner security. Go watch the HBO documentary “Exterminate All the Brutes”. You will get the entire picture.

      • hair color eye color height race sex — descriptive information used to be given about (alleged) perps of crime — why was that stopped? Doesn’t fit the leftist MSMs false narratives — white supremists, etc.

    • just use your imagination — obviously white supremists according to the MsMs narratives or Trump in blackface LoL
