San Jose Police Chief to Address Officer-Involved Shooting Near San Jose State University

San Jose police Chief Eddie Garcia on Monday is slated to provide details regarding an officer-involved shooting that happened roughly one block away from San Jose State University Sunday morning.

No one was injured as a result of the shooting, which occurred along the 500 block of South 10th Street after a report of a possible home invasion at an apartment complex, police said.

A suspect connected to the incident was taken into custody, according to police. 

San Jose State student Ethan Cox said many students live on the street and were jolted awake from their sleep.

"It sounded like four or five gunshots; it woke everybody up," he said. "After that, we kind stayed inside."

At least one officer opened fire as police looked for two suspects, one of them armed with a gun who reportedly refused to drop it.

Garcia is scheduled to address the officer-involved shooting at 3 p.m. at the city's police department.

Further information was not available.
