    Police are searching for the suspect in the San Jose's 37th homicide of the year, after a man was shot to death near a Vietnamese restaurant and bar.

    San Jose police spokesman Albert Morales didn't say much else about the 1:46 a.m. shooting, other than officers responded to the 1700 block of Rogers Avenue, near the San Jose International Airport and the intersection of Interstate Highway 880 and U.S. Highway 101.

    There, outside the Alo Restaurant and Bar,  they found a man who had been shot at least once. He was pronounced dead at the scene around 2 a.m.

    A business owner near the bar said he was scared for his employees and his property.

    "This one's a bar not a coffee shop. They don’t open till 5. There's nudity, strippers. Don't know if they're licensed but I know they get brought here in limousines," the man told NBC Bay Area. 

    He said the location was a good spot from them because he said police never come around at night. 

    One woman told NBC Bay Area that she saw a lot of bullets, and at least six or seven bullet holes in cars lined up out front.

    Another man told NBC Bay Area there is often a lot of fighting at this bar.

    Police said they are looking for the the suspect, who fled before police arrived.

    The victim's identity is being withheld pending positive identification by the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's Office.
