Sheriff says “shooter is down”


The shootings reported in downtown San Jose are taking place at the VTA city train station in San Jose, a light rail official says.

“We have reports of an active shooter, it is our light rail maintenance yard,” says Brandi Childress, VTA spokeswoman.

She says the sheriff and police are on site, telling people to avoid the area. “We have evacuated employees,” she said calmly, but clearly shaken.

CNN has contacted the Amalgamated Transit Union 265 and the National Amalgamated Transit Union for comment.
