    A shooting late Friday left one man dead, according to San Jose police.

    At about 10:43 p.m., officers — responding to a report of a shooting — arrived near Capitol Expressway and Tully Road where they discovered an adult man who had sustained at least one gunshot wound, police said.

    The man died at the scene shortly thereafter, police said. This marks the city's 10th homicide in the past six weeks.
