Several people were being treated for injuries in a shooting at a railyard in San Jose, California, Wednesday morning that left the suspect dead.
Soon after the the shooting was reported around 6:45 a.m., the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, which had control of the scene, tweeted: “Shooter is down.”
Mayor Sam Liccardo said in a tweet that “the shooter is no longer a threat.”
He said the shooting “has left several people being treated, but the situation is still being assessed.”
CNN reported the shooting occurred at the site of a Valley Transportation Authority light rail maintenance yard. Brandi Childress, a spokeswoman for the agency, told CNN there were “reports of an active shooter” there and that employees had been evacuated.
The VTA tweeted a later update saying, “Suspect deceased.”
The rail yard is next door to the Sheriff’s Office and across a freeway from the airport.
