Three people were shot and killed in parking garage on San Jose State's campus and police said it was a murder-suicide.
A shooting in a San Jose State University parking garage on Tuesday night left three people dead, including the shooter, a school spokeswoman said.
Campus spokesperson Pat Harris said Wednesday morning that the shooting was a double murder suicide, adding the weapon was found at the scene.
The shooting happened at about 8:30 p.m. on the fifth floor of the 10th Street garage at the corner of East San Fernando and South 10th streets.
Two people were pronounced dead at the scene and the third died later at a hospital.
An initial message was sent out over the university's internal public address system, and was later followed up by an alert sent to students via text message informing students and staff of the incident.
The garage was closed for several hours after the shooting, but at least partially reopened shortly after midnight. Many students waited around in hopes of getting their car out of the garage.
The San Jose Police Department is assisting with the investigation, and sent two homicide detectives and a crime scene investigator to the university Tuesday night, police spokesman Officer Jose Garcia said.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the San Jose State University Police Department at (408) 924-2168.
