San Jose: Shooting Off McKee Marks 38th Homicide of 2020

Authorities are investigating a fatal shooting on the 2000 block of McKee Road as a homicide, the San Jose Police Department announced today.

Officers responded to the scene around 2:35am Tuesday, according to a press release sent by SJPD spokesman Officer Steve Aponte.

When they arrived they found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. The victim, whose name is being withheld until authorities notify his relatives, died at a hospital a short time later. Police have yet to track down any suspects and yet to determine what motivated the attack.

The killing marks the 38th homicide in San Jose so far this year.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Sgt. Isidro Bagon or Detective Sanchez of the San Jose Police Department’s Homicide unit at 408.277.5283. Those who want to remain anonymous may call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 408.947.7867.

A previous version of the story mis-identified Detective Sanchez and the race of the victim. San Jose Inside regrets the errors.


  1. OK, so 38 murders in San Jose so far this year, with a little under two months still to go. That would be more than the 34 murders that San Jose had for all of 2019, and it is above the 10 year average of about 37 murders a year. There’s still time! San Jose could proudly be headed for another banner 40+ murder year! How is that whole vilification of and defund the police thing working out for you there in the media?
    …Hey, wait a minute, I just re-read the article. This was a black guy and HE WASN”T SHOT BY THE POLICE!?! Oh the humanity!…What a world! What a world!…I’m melting….
