SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Police in San Jose are investigating what led to the fatal shooting of a teenage boy Saturday morning, a police sergeant said.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 10300 Murtha Drive in East San Jose at about 1:05 a.m., Sgt. Jason Dwyer said.
When officers arrived, they located a large party that was breaking up, and found a car that was believed to be associated with the call, Dwyer said.
A nearby officer performed a traffic stop at White and Story roads, according to Dwyer.
Dwyer said that the officer conducting the stop saw a male, believed to be 17 years old, inside the car suffering from several gunshot wounds.
