San Jose: The San Jose Police Department is investigating the City's 11th homicide of 2013.  On 4/6/2013, at approximately 2:46 A.M., the San Jose Police Department's 9-1-1 Communications Center received a report of a person shot in the 2000 block of Senter Road in South San Jose.  Upon arrival, patrol officers located the victim, 37 year old San Jose Resident Viet Tran, down in the street suffering from at least one gunshot wound.  The victim was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. 

Preliminary investigation into the shooting has revealed that there was a large party inside the "Elite Audio" business located at 2010 Senter Road.  Detectives believe the shooting was possibly the result of a disturbance that started inside the party and spilled outside.  Arriving officers detained approximately 25 people who were believed to have been inside the party.  Officers entered the building to check for additional victims and met with resistance.  Several people barricaded themselves in locked rooms while others hid.  Eventually, officers were able to clear the building after deploying less-than-lethal projectiles on four non-compliant individuals during the high-risk search.     

Detectives identified several Vietnamese criminal street gangs associated to this party. The suspects remain unidentified and at-large.  The motive behind the shooting remains under investigation.  The San Jose Police Department's Homicide Unit is investigating the case
