Father of Three Fatally Shot in South San Jose Home

Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man in his 50s Thursday afternoon in South San Jose, and the suspect is still on the loose.

The shooting in the 3600 block of Misty Glen Court, near Highway 101, marks the city's 13th homicide of the year, police said.

Officers responded to the shooting at 1:26 p.m. and found a man inside a home suffering from at least one gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Family members from Sacramento confirmed with NBC Bay Area later Thursday the victim was Khanh Kieu, a Vietnamese man in his mid-50s and a father of three. They say he was a doctor who emigrated from Vietnam five years ago but was not working in the U.S.

Neighbors said they heard two or three quick pops then police swarmed the scene. They were shocked to hear what happened.

"Quiet neighborhood, just real quiet," neighbor Kevin Asencio said. "That's about it. Never no problems around here."

"I don't know how he got shot, who shot him. It's so sad," said Nary Krom.

An investigation is ongoing and no other information was immediately available.
