    About 5:30 p.m., San Jose police officers responded to reports of a person shot in the area of Kooser Road and Meridian Avenue, police said. Officers located a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

    The victim was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.
