    San Jose police are working overtime in an all-out effort to catch a man they say is responsible for a rare and terrifying crime spree.

    A shooting left one person dead and a second victim clinging to life in San Jose Saturday morning less than an hour after a separate deputy-involved shooting took place across town, a police spokesman said.

    The shooting occurred at about 11 a.m. in the 800 block of South  Third Street, Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.  The shooting scene is close to San Jose State University.

    Neighobors told NBC Bay Area the victim who died was a San Jose State student and his girlfriend is the one who was shot. They said the motive could have been robbery of drugs.

    A deadly homicide in broad daylight in San Jose, leaves one person dead and another fighting for their life.

    Police did not identify either victim.

      The shooting happened about a half hour after a deputy-involved shooting about a mile and a half away near the intersection of South Montgomery Street  and Park Avenue, Dwyer said.

      San Jose police are investigating the incident, which involved deputies from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office but took place within  the Police Department's jurisdiction. According to Dwyer, those deputies  fired at a suspect who was later taken into custody.

       A sheriff's spokesman said that the agency was not releasing information about the shooting.
