Man Shot Twice in San Jose Drive-By

San Jose police are investigating a shooting Friday morning where a man was struck twice by bullets in an apparent drive-by shooting near Mount Pleasant High School.

Sgt. Jason Dwyer said the call came in just about 7:30 a.m. near South White Road and Mt. Vista Drive.

The man's father, Ricardo Gonzales Sr., identified his son, Ricky Gonzales as the 34-year-old victim. He said the shooting occurred at 4 a.m., but he called police several hours later. His son was able to walk home, and he did not elaborate on why it took him so long to call for help.

"He looked at me in the doorway, he picks up his T-shirt ... and I looked at it and I said, 'What happened?' " his father said. "I went to 7-Eleven and somebody, two guys in a car a blue car shot me."

Late Friday morning, he was in stable condition at the hospital.

The suspects fled the scene and are at-large. Sgt. Jason Dwyer said the shooting may appear to be gang related but it was too early to speculate.
