A man wounded in an officer-involved shooting in San Jose this morning was a suspected armed robber, a police sergeant said. At around 3 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call reporting an armed robbery in the 3300 block of Holly Drive, Sgt. Heather Randol said. A man with a shotgun had reportedly held up a victim at that location, Randol said.

Officers arrived on scene and shots were fired after a brief pursuit, Randol said. The suspect was shot at least once and taken to a hospital to be treated, Randol said. A shotgun was found near the suspect after the shooting, Randol said. The details of the shooting remain under investigation.
