If the suspect is spotted, citizens are encouraged to call 9-1-1. Citizens should not attempt to apprehend the suspect as he is considered armed and dangerous. The incident in question occurred at approximately 4:21 A.M. on July 23rd. The San Jose Police Department’s 9-1-1 call center received a report of shots being fired in the 300 block of N. 7th Street.
Upon arrival, officers located a residence they believed to be involved. Officers entered the residence to conduct a protective sweep and subsequently located the two homicide victims. Both victims had been shot and were pronounced dead at the scene. Three children living in the residence were recovered safely by officers at the scene. The motive behind the homicides appears to be domestic violence related. This incident marks San Jose’s 21st and 22nd homicides of 2012.
