    Police on Tuesday night were investigating a deadly officer-involved shooting near the Metcalf Energy Center in South San Jose, sources told NBC Bay Area.

    The suspect police fired on possibly had an ax, and the incident also may have been linked to a foiled burglary, the sources said. The suspect died at the scene.

    A plant spokesman confirmed late Tuesday that the shooting involved an intruder and local law enforcement at the facility, but he declined to elaborate.

    "Our employees are safe and we are cooperating with authorities," Calpine spokesman Brett Kerr said in a statement.
