San Jose Police Still Seek Suspects in 2013 Shooting

Shooting occurred here

SAN JOSE– The San Jose Police Department is asking the public’s help in identifying a suspect seen just moments before a shooting occurred at a local business.

According to the San Jose Police Department, “on 4/6/2013, at approximately 2:46 A.M., the San Jose Police Department’s 9-1-1 Communications Center received a report of a person shot in the 2000 block of Senter Road in South San Jose.”

Responding officers found an unconscious victim who appeared to be suffering from a bullet wound.  The 37-year-old San Jose resident, Viet Tran, was found gunned down on the side walk outside a business that was throwing a party at 2010 Senter Road.

It is suspected that a fight broke out inside the business that soon ended outside with around more than 25 people who remained inside the business.  Officers were met with hostility as they tired to question party goers for more information about the shooting.

After searching the business it was determined that several people had blocked officers from entering rooms and would not cooperate with officers about the shooting of Tran.  During the search officers were forced to use less-than-lethal projectiles on four non-compliant individuals during the high-risk search.

According to police, “detectives identified several Vietnamese criminal street gangs associated to this party.”  It is believed that the suspects remain unidentified and are at-large.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Wayne Smith or Detective Brian McDonald of the San Jose Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 408-277-5283.
