Officials: Gunfire erupts at San Jose railyard, several hurt
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The mayor of San Jose, California says several people are receiving medical treatment after police and sheriff’s officials responded to reports of a shooting at a railyard.
Mayor Sam Liccardo said Wednesday in a tweet that “the shooter is no longer a threat” and the facility has been evacuated.
He said the shooting “has left several people being treated, but the situation is still being assessed.”
The shooting took place at a light rail facility that is next door to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department and across a freeway from the airport.
A spokesperson for the Valley Transportation Authority did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
