San Jose, Calif. - On Sunday, May 7, 2017, at approximately 7:59 AM, San Jose officers responded to the 2200 block of Tully Road on a report of a suspicious person armed with a handgun.  As officers arrived on scene, and began giving the suspect commands, the suspect pulled out a .45 caliber pistol and fired in the direction of the officers. One officer returned fire. The suspect fled in the opposite direction and jumped a fence into a nearby mobile home complex.  A perimeter was quickly established and the suspect was located a short time later and taken into custody.  The .45 caliber handgun, which had been stolen in a 2013 burglary, was also located.  The suspect was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for three counts of attempted murder of a police officer and possession of a stolen firearm.  No injuries were reported.

The motive and circumstances surrounding the incident are still under investigation.

The officer will be placed on routine paid administrative leave. The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office will review the investigation upon completion of the San Jose Police Department  Homicide Unit's criminal investigation. The case is being monitored by the San Jose Police Department's Internal Affairs Unit, the City Attorney’s Office, and the Office of the Independent Police Auditor.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant John Barg #3640 or Detective Wayne Smith #3487 of the San Jose Police Department's Homicide Unit at 408-277-5283.
