San Jose, Calif. - On Tuesday, October 25, 2016, at about 12:01 AM, three San Jose Police Officers were in the 400 block of Wooster Ave. on foot patrol when they heard a broadcast over the police radio of a stolen vehicle traveling near their location. 

One of the officers had just entered his patrol vehicle when he spotted the stolen vehicle traveling in his direction. The vehicle was occupied by the lone driver (see description below). The suspect vehicle reversed direction into a cul-de-sac. The officer initiated a high risk car stop on the stolen vehicle. Instead of complying, the driver of the stolen vehicle accelerated and drove head into the officer's vehicle.

The stolen vehicle went into reverse, struck a parked semi-truck trailer, and accelerated towards the officer a second time. At this time, two other officers at the scene fired their service weapons at the suspect in defense of the victim officer's life. The suspect was able to escape. The victim officer was transported to a local hospital suffering minor injuries and was subsequently released.

A short time later, the suspect vehicle was located unoccupied approximately 1 mile away in the area of McKee Rd. and El Rancho Verde Dr. Patrol and K9 officers located a person hiding nearby. This person was taken into custody without incident. He had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for Resisting Arrest. After preliminary interviews, investigators determined he was not involved in the shooting. This suspect was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for the outstanding warrant.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 20 and 30 years old. At this time, it does not appear the suspect was injured in the confrontation and area hospitals were checked for walk in shooting victims - none were found.

All three officers were placed on routine paid administrative leave. The San Jose Police Department's Homicide Unit is conducting the 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 Pat Guire or Detective Todd Jennings of the San Jose Police Department's Homicide Unit at 408-277-5283.

Persons wishing to remain anonymous may either call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line, (408) 947-STOP (7867), or click the "Submit a Tip" link below.
