HALF MOON BAY -- Police staked out a San Mateo County home for more than 13 hours Tuesday, but the 19-year-old El Granada man they sought in connection with a Vallejo shooting was not found at the house when a robot was sent in to investigate around 10 p.m., police said.

"We were not able to locate the suspect," said sheriff's Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt. "The vehicle he is associated with is still on the property, however at this point he is still outstanding."

Sheriff's deputies believed the man, who has not been named, was in a home on Isabella Avenue around 8:50 a.m. Police secured a warrant allowing them to enter the house in the afternoon, but made efforts to talk to the suspect into the evening, said Rosenblatt.

It wasn't immediately clear if the cases were connected, but Vallejo police said Monday they were looking for a 19-year-old man in connection with a shooting in their city. In that crime an 18-year-old man was shot in the torso on the 200 block of Voyager Drive around 3:25 p.m.

The violence was preceded by an argument between the suspect and victim. After the gunfire, the shooter escaped in a Toyota truck with a camper top, police said.
