A suspect was arrested this morning in connection to a shooting that sent a 28-year-old man to the hospital in San Jose on Friday night, according to police.

Police are investigating a shooting in San Jose that sent a 28-year-old man to the hospital on Friday night, a San Jose police officer said. At about 8:05 p.m., police received a call from a motorist traveling near Snell and Hillsdale avenues who heard a gunshot and reportedly saw an injured adult male staggering away from the area, San Jose police Officer Jose Garcia said. However, when officers arrived at the scene, they were unable to locate a victim, according to Garcia.

Nearly 15 minutes later, police received another call from a witness at the intersection of Monterey Road and Curtner Avenue, about 3.5 miles away from the crime scene, reporting that a man with a gunshot wound had been spotted near a neighboring Shell gas station. Garcia said that the injured man had apparently fled the scene in his vehicle immediately following the shooting and driven himself to the second intersection.

The man was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Police could not release the victim’s identity, as an investigation is still under way, Garcia said.

A preliminary investigation revealed the suspect and victim potentially knew each other but were not affiliated with a gang, Garcia said. At 5:30 a.m., police located the suspect in the 3000 block of Bradshaw Drive, and the suspect was then arrested. No other information about the suspect was immediately available.
