    One Man Killed, One Injured in 'Brazen' Shooting at Coffee Shop in San Jose: Police
    NBC Bay Area
    Two men were shot, one fatally, at a coffee shop on Tully Road, San Jose police said. March 11, 2016.

    A man was killed and another injured in a "brazen" shooting late Friday in San Jose, police said.

    The shooting occurred just before 11 p.m. in a "crowded" coffee shop on the 1900 block of Tully Road, according to Sgt. Enrique Garcia.

    Speaking at a news conference Saturday, Garcia said a preliminary investigation shows that the suspect "walked into the coffee shop and targeted the victims." 

    "He shot them point blank" and fled the scene, Garcia said.

    The two victims, identified only as adult men, were transported to an area hospital.

    One of the victims suffered injuries that were life threatening, and he was later pronounced dead at the hospital, police said. The second remains hospitalized with minor injuries as of Saturday afternoon.

    As of Saturday afternoon, police, who have surveillance footage from the scene, have not released a description of the suspect.

    Garcia urged the suspect, however, to "consider his options" and turn himself in.

    "He can only hide for so long" before someone reports his whereabouts, Garcia said. 

    Police are also seeking the public's help, he said, adding that it "would be in everyone's best interest" to take the suspect "off the streets."

    "There is someone out there who has so far gotten away with murder, and we want to apprehend him as soon as possible," Garcia stressed.

    This is the city's ninth homicide of the year.
