    A 44-year-old San Jose man was killed Friday night in a double  shooting in front of a residence, a police spokesman said.

    He and the other victim, a 55-year-old man, were standing and  drinking beer at about 11 p.m. in front of a home in the 100 block of Birch  Lane when an unknown male opened fire on them, police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.

    Paramedics performed CPR on one of the men at the scene and took  both to Regional Medical Center, where one was pronounced dead at about 11:20  p.m., Dwyer said. His identity had not been released Saturday.

    The other victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and  released.

    Police are not saying whether either man lived at the home where  the shooting took place, Dwyer said.

    No arrests had been made in the case as of Saturday morning, and  police were still trying to identify a motive.

    The shooting was San Jose's 23rd homicide of the year, according  to Dwyer.
