Nearby resident Gary Lopez said around 10 p.m. a car "came racing down the hill."
"Pretty much almost ran into our property here," he continued. "But then probably about three minutes after that, we heard all of the police and fire rushing up the hill."
The shooting deaths mark San Jose's ninth and 10th homicides of 2018, police said.
"I live in here for 20 years," resident Jose Brazil said. "I never heard nothing like this. I'm kind of scared right now because this is a quiet place, very nice neighbors. I don't know what happened up there."
Further information was not available.
