NBC Bay Area

A man who was shot in South San Jose Monday evening appears to be on the mend, police announced Tuesday.

The victim was reported to be clinging for his life after the shooting, but police on Tuesday said his injuries were now considered to be non-life threatening.

About 5:30 p.m. on Monday, San Jose police officers responded to reports of a person shot in the area of Kooser Road and Meridian Avenue, police said. Officers located a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

The victim was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

One person was detained, police said.

One witness saw the victim walking a bike before the gunman walked up behind him, pointed the gun for what seemed like an extended period of time and then pulled the trigger.

Nearby shops, including a Starbucks and McDonald's, were closed as police investigated the scene. Kooser Road also was shut down between Meridian Avenue and Blossom Hill Road.

Further information was not available.
