San Jose police are investigating a shooting Sunday night at a park in the city that left a juvenile male injured and resulted in a subsequent vehicle and foot pursuit that ended with the arrest of four suspects, a police sergeant said. Officers received a report of a shooting around 8:15 p.m. at Happy Hollow Park at 1300 Senter Road. Arriving officers found a male juvenile suffering from a single gunshot wound to his leg, police Sgt. Ronnie Lopez said. He was transported to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening. According to Lopez, officers noticed a vehicle leaving the park at a high speed and initiated a stop. The vehicle refused to stop, however, and led police on a pursuit. During the pursuit a subject inside the vehicle threw out a firearm, Lopez said. The vehicle crashed soon after, Lopez said, and the suspects then led officers on a foot pursuit. Police finally caught up with four suspects and took all four into custody. Officers used a Taser on a suspect who resisted arrest, Lopez said. Officers were able to recover the firearm that was thrown out of the vehicle window, Lopez said. Police are investigating the motive behind the shooting and
looking for possible additional suspects.
