There have been seven OIS incidents so far in 2015, four of which were fatal. Of the five officer-involved shootings in 2014, two were fatal.
The shootings that occurred earlier this month took place over a six-hour span the weekend prior. One ended with the suspect apparently committing suicide.
According to police, two officers shot at AJ Phillips, 30, when he pointed a gun at them on Aug. 9. He then barricaded himself inside a house, where police say they found him dead hours later.
In a separate incident that same night, police gunned down 22-year-old stabbing suspect Edrian Rivera.
San Jose police have not been involved in this many shootouts since 2011, when there were eight.
