Police investigate deadly stabbing in San Jose


A stabbing victim and shooting victim were both found inside a home in a quiet San Jose neighborhood Thursday morning. 

Authorities say the deadly stabbing happened around 8:30 a.m. at a home on Ayer Avenue and stemmed from a violent altercation. 

Initially, officers were responding to a welfare check and before they arrived the call was updated to a stabbing. 

Once at the scene, they found two adult male victims. The stabbing victim was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police also found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. 

KRON4’s Haaziq Madyun spoke with one neighbor, who wished not to be identified. 

He said the home belongs to an elderly couple who lived there with their adult son. 

“It saddens me that something happened with them. I know his mom and I know his dad,” he said. “They are just nice people. Nothing radical in any direction. I dunno? I’m stunned.”

The family lived had in the quiet neighborhood for over 30 years. 

Police are withholding the names of both the stabbing and shooting victims, but investigators said the suspect was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
