At Least 8 Dead After Mass Shooting at San Jose Transit Facility


According to reports, a gunman opened fire at a northern California transit facility on Wednesday morning, killing at least 8 and wounding several others.

The gunman, an employee of the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) in San Jose, was among those reported dead at the scene. Authorities confirmed that gunfire was not exchanged between officers and the gunman, who has since been identified as Sam Cassidy. “I know for sure that when the suspect knew the law enforcement was there, he took his own life, our deputies were right there at that time,” said Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith.

The city’s mayor Sam Liccardo said “It’s clear the victims and all the colleagues knew the shooter well.”
