Several people have been killed at a mass shooting during a union meeting at a California light rail yard, according to police and multiple reports.
As many as six to seven people may have been killed, with the gunman reportedly committing suicide, sources told KPIX5 reporter Len Ramirez.
Family of a Valley Transportation Authority employee told KTUV that the shooting occurred during a union meeting, which Santa Clara County Sheriff tweeted it was investigating just after 7 am local time.
San Jose journalist Robert Salonga first reported that the gunman was among several people killed during the shooting near Younger and San Pedro streets.
Santa Clara County Sheriff confirmed the death in a tweet saying “shooter is down”.
While authorities have not confirmed fatalities beyond the gunman, San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo said several people are being treated for injuries while the situation is being assessed.
“The shooter is no longer a threat, and the facility has been evacuated,” he said in a tweet. “Our hearts are pained for the families of those we have lost in this horrific shooting.”
