    The San Jose Police Department is  investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred this morning. At approximately 10:50 a.m., officers responded to the 6100 block of Snowberry Court on a report of a disturbance. A family member called 911 to report that a 27-year-old male was being assaultive toward family members.

The officer did not hit the suspect. The suspect fled on foot and was apprehended a short time later by incoming officers who spotted him a couple of blocks away, according to a news release.
