    A man died after he and two other suspects allegedly robbed someone of a scooter in San Jose early Tuesday morning, and police are considering the case a suspicious death.

    Officers responded at 3:47 a.m. to a report of a robbery in the 1100 block of Story Road. The victim said three suspects stole his scooter, police said.

    Arriving officers were directed to one of the suspects, who was found lying on the ground. Officers handcuffed him, then realized he was unresponsive. Emergency personnel took him to a hospital, where he died a short time later, according to police.
