SAN JOSE – The San Jose Police Department has announced the arrest of a wanted suspect in the shooting death of a male victim at a local FoodMaxx grocery store.
According to Sergeant Enrique Garcia, “On Friday, September 6, 2019, at about 12:40 PM, San Jose police officers responded to a call of a person down in the 1500 block of Parkmoor Avenue in San Jose.” San Jose Homicide Investigators responding to the scene were able to gather evidence and video footage that led to the identification of 42-year-old Robert Eugene Styre. The identification of the shooter allowed officers to submit a Ramey warrant.
The information gained through interviews with family members and witnesses gave investigators the ability to track the suspect to Central California where Ceres police officers made a felony traffic stop, taking Styre into custody.
Garcia said, “On Saturday, September 7, 2019, at about 1:15 AM, an officer with the Ceres (CA) Police Department made a car stop on a vehicle associated to suspect Styre.” Styre was subsequently held by Ceres police and released to San Jose Police Department homicide detectives after which he was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail for murder.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Anthony Kilmer or Detective Ted Reckas of the San Jose Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 408-277-5283.
