VTA Worker Arrested after Threatening Gun Violence at San Jose Bus Yard

A Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority employee was arrested Friday on suspicion of making a criminal threat of gun violence while other employees were at a bus yard in San Jose, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

The name of the man arrested was not immediately released following the arrest for threats made at the Chaboya Division Yard on South Seventh Street.

Deputies responded at 7:50am Friday and contacted the person who reported the threats, then arrested the employee and booked him into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of making criminal threats.

The case comes after last summer's mass shooting at another VTA maintenance yard where a VTA worker killed nine VTA colleagues before shooting himself.

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information on the case to call (408) 808-4500, or an anonymous tip line at (408) 808-4431.
