Santa Clara County prosecutors say three sheriff’s deputies were justified in shooting the man suspected of killing three people at a quarry last year.
Emergency dispatchers received desperate calls for help after a man opened fire at a Santa Clara County quarry, with victims breathlessly urging police and ambulances to come quickly.
Funeral services were held in San Jose Wednesday for one of the victims of last weeks quarry shooting, and more than 400 people turned out.
The gunman responsible for a deadly workplace shooting rampage at a Cupertino cement plant last week died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the coroner.
The Texas-based company that owns Lehigh Southwest Cement plant in Cupertino said in a statement Monday that workers were attempting to make the plant fully operational within a week.
The gunman in the Cupertino quarry shooting rampage made suicidal comments and brandished a handgun before the deputies shot and killed him, according to the lawyer for the deputies.
The suspect in the killing of three people in a shooting at the Lehigh Cement Plant near Cupertino early Wednesday morning was shot dead in Sunnyvale on Thursday morning by sheriff’s deputies.
