Several killed in San Jose, California, rail yard shooting

 Several people were killed and others were wounded when a gunman opened fire in a light rail yard in San Jose, California, on Wednesday (May 26), the county sheriff’s office said.

Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Deputy Russell Davis told reporters that there were “there are multiple injuries and multiple fatalities” and the shooter was now dead.

“I can’t confirm the exact number of injuries and fatalities,” he said.

The shooting took place a little before 7 a.m. PT (1400 GMT) at a light rail yard run by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority near the city’s main airport.

San Jose, a city with about 1 million residents, lies at the heart of Silicon Valley, a global center of technological innovation and home of some of America’s biggest tech companies.

Davis said he would share more information later.

A local ABC News affiliate reported that the building was not open to the public, so the shooter would have needed employee access or to have broken in.
