SAN JOSE (CBS 5) — A man in his 20s was seriously injured Wednesday during what police and witnesses described as a brazen daytime shooting outside a McDonald’s restaurant in San Jose.

The unidentified victim was shot in the head, “execution-style” in front of a horrified lunchtime crowd at the McDonald’s at 898 S. Bascom Avenue, across from the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.

SJPD Officer Jose Garcia said it appeared that the shooter walked up to the victim and shot him once at close range, then ran north on South Bascom Avenue.

The victim was taken across the street to the hospital for treatment of potentially life-threatening injuries. There was no other immediate information on his condition.

There were bloodstains and a black beanie on the ground where the victim had been shot. Bystanders gathered outside nearby businesses throughout the afternoon to watch the police activity.

KCBS’ Mike Colgan Reports:

As police searched for the shooter during the noon hour, nearby Del Mar High School was briefly locked down as a precaution.

The gunman, who remained on the loose Wednesday evening, was described by police as a Hispanic or white male in his late teens or early 20s with a light complexion.

Police said they had not recovered the firearm used in the shooting and assumed that the suspect was armed and dangerous.

Garcia said it appeared there was not much interaction between the shooter and the victim before the shooter opened fire.

He said the motive was not yet clear and that police were looking into whether the crime was gang-related. He said the area did have its “fair share” of factions of the Norteño and Sureño gangs.

    C’mon you dumb gang banging weenies, just keep shooting each other till you’re all gone.

    1. Javier Hinojos says:

      The only problem with your statement is one day you will put on a t-shirt and walk outside and somebody will think, based on the color of your shirt, that you are a gang member. You will be killed and nobody will care because you are just another gang banging weeinie.

      1. Flip and Glib says:

        No he won’t. Americans don’t dress like punk a$$ gang bangers. Punk a$$ gang bangers are easy to spot with their dew-rags, their facial tattoos, and their filthy gangsta language. No one cares when primitive gangstas die.

      2. chivo says:

        thats called a slippery slope. Your reasoning FAILS

      3. patches12 says:

        I say round them all up, put them in a gymnasium with machine guns and let them kill eachother.. we will all be better off.

    2. ERIC BAXTER says:

      Yes… it would be utterly FANTASTIC !!!

    3. DT says:

      Statistically – Approximately 150,000 people die every 24 hrs.

      Do you fear death?

      Let this be a wake up call!


      The people who died yesterday didn’t think it was their day to die. We don’t know when it’s ours. This is the reason we need to get in touch with our conscience. Have you ever lied, stolen, taken God’s name in vain, looked with lust-which Jesus calls ‘Adultery of the heart’. Of course you have…we all have! We have broken the 10 Commandments.

      Because of this sin, we are ALL guilty in God’s sight. God’s Word says, ‘All liars and thieves will have their part in the lake of fire.’

      Guilty people go to hell.

      Please don’t be thinking something like, ‘My god is a good god and would never send me to hell. I have never killed anyone or anything.’
      If you thought something like this, you just broke the 2nd Commandment – Do not make a graven image (A god to suit yourself) Also, The Bible says, ‘If anyone hates his brother, he has committed murder in his heart.’

      We are guilty!


      Jesus Christ alone paid for your sin guilt. God, sent his only Son, Jesus, to die for the sins of the world. He is the Savior!

      Erase your sin guilt and therefore erase your fear of death.

      HERE’S HOW:

      Ask God for forgiveness for your sins
      Turn away from (Repent) your sins
      Trust in Jesus’ death, His shed blood on the Cross, to save you.

      Read the Bible, trust what it says, and remain in prayer to God.

      He will never let you down.

  2. Versus says:

    Send the gang bangers to Iran for priority execution!

  3. Aggie95 says:

    just more obama supporters gone bad

    1. CMV says:

      Oboma supporters don’t go around shooting people.
      Although you are a moron, we will forgive the BS flowing out your mouth.

      1. Sampson says:

        You obviously don’t pay any attention to the news, we will forgive the ignorant point of view from which you speak from.

      2. trayz says:

        Obama supporters are the type to shoot people, without Minnesota felons Al Franken would still be another loser comedian, now he is a loser Senator comedian… Democats are the party affiliated with the majority in jail…you hate fact otherwise you would go to and read some statistics.

      3. meeester says:

        It may have been the Tea Party gang. Round up all the republicans.

      4. TC says:

        They just shoot out RNC office windows and send death threats to WI lawmakers

      5. Wally says:

        umm yeah they do.

        it does seem that liberals want to ban guns because they aren’t responsible enough to use them. It does kinda seem like they want to delegate every responsibility that we used to think were just the normal responsibilities of being an adult to the People’s Babysitter aka the Government. Responsible adults with any tiny amount of self control don’t shoot other people “bbbbbecause he said I was wrong, wah. they don’t like my dumb ideas.” Grow up, grow a pair, and take care of your own problems instead of dumping them on the taxpaying citizens.

        (man, that was kind of a rant, but im not gonna delete it now that i typed it)

      6. theoutlawjoseywhales says:

        Just another obama supporter acting out. Obama supporters do go around shooting people. So, did you just arrive from outer space? And we don’t forgive the bs coming from your mouth.

      7. Thos Weatherby says:

        Yes they do. The guy in NC that killed a dozen people was a Obama supporter. The college professor that killed the guy was a Obama supporter. The family that was killed in Ohio was killed by a Obama supporter. Happens all of the time. The death threats on the Wisconsin Republicans are Obama supporters.
        WAKE UP.

      8. Perseus317 says:

        Yeah! Obama supporters just shoot at the windows of Republican campaign headquarters, like the one in Washington, D.C. Oh! I forgot! That’s ok, because it’s only the Tea Party members that are violent. Riiiight!

      9. ztebyllek says:

        I guess you did not hear about the DC GOP office with it’s windows shot out.

      10. ERIC BAXTER says:

        Perhaps not, but they DO LIE CHEAT AND STEAL to win elections. Check this out, you Lib moron…

      11. ralphone says:

        Yes sir just like DOJ Holder writing off on crime, DHS Napolitano “everything
        is fine onthe border. Tired the smoke screens, time to face the truth.

    2. alan says:

      What a ridiculous statement.

      1. AtlasObjectivist says:

        No, that would be a very accurate statement.

    3. John Doh says:

      you are a moron.

      1. HMichaelH says:

        When you say, “you are a moron,” to whom do you refer? Who is “you?”

        Maybe John Doh is the moron, who does not know how to write an understandable comment!

    4. Swift Johnson says:

      Love how the meagerly outraged voices of the socially and politically impotent “common man” choose to turn an issue of social depravity into one of partisanship?? What the eff does Obama or the Tea Party have to do with any of this?!?! Keep looking for these “leaders” to lead us out of our own social messes… Effing SHEEPLE

    5. Jasper Ball-Baggins says:

      Ummm African-Americans voted for Obama to a tune of 94%. Hispanics, young hispanics voted for him over 70%. So, well, unfortunately….

    6. Charlie X says:

      Yep, heh. lol.

  4. liz says:

    Sentence them to death or banish all these cowards to some deserted island and let them fend for themselves and live with other trash like rapist, kidnappers, burglars and molesters and anyone violent that can’t manage to live in a society with laws. Why do we send them to prison, its like vacation. They get meals and beds and health care. That’s why they dont care about what they do because there is no real consequence. We need to make some real changes about how to handle this type of person. WE WANT EXECUTIONS!!!!! Stop complaining about how its not humane when these crimes are not humane either.

    1. Granny K says:

      The people in charge tried that once. It’s called: Australia.

      1. The Man says:

        Also called Southern USA.

      2. Common Sense says:

        This country was built on the back of Southern USA. What ignorance. Are you a racist????

      3. Wang Long says:

        Georgia was originally set up as a penal colony, read a book.

      4. Larsinkima says:

        Agree or disagree, that one worked out pretty good, didn’t it?

      5. stonewall foy says:

        you South-haters can all come down here and debate it face to face, anytime. i do suggest you read more than one book, wang long.

      6. ERIC BAXTER says:

        Yes, and it worked quite well for the English….

    2. FameMonster says:

      That’s what Im talkin about!!!!

    3. Rick says:

      You are right on the money; executions should be by way of the crime perpetrated. An eye for an eye….. They tortured someone to death, that’s what they get. Might make a few stop and think before they continue with a crime. But then again most aren’t smart enough to realize that they will be caught. Another way is at dinner on death row sedate the food so they fall into a deep sleep then go to the condemned mans cell and pump 2 rounds into his skull, drag him out and tell everyone he was transferred when they come too the next morning.

      1. stonewall foy says:

        someone told me about something arabs do correctly: put prisoners in block cells with security. no bed. no food. no drink. no bathroom. nothing. if their families do not come to feed them, they starve to death.

        forcing families to be accountable for their inability to teach their children civilized behavior is a novel concept to the politically correct.

  5. The Truth Stings says:

    Obama Supporter Gone Bad. Mike Moore can film a commentary on that due to the wealth of material to gather this truth from.

    1. The Man says:

      How did I know that the right wing cukes wouuld blame Obama? Maybe the 9.0
      disturbed the rock that they live under.

      1. Toxic Avenger says:

        Try living in reality loser. Just another illegal immigrant who wants Hussein to give him his “free” rights.


      2. seab Patriot says:

        No one is blaming Obama jerkoff, we are blaming the liberalism that leads to this type of WEAK society and Obama is one of those links, SO ARE YOU

      3. Red says:

        What’s a cuke?

      4. so con says:

        liberalism is a mental disorder

      5. Ghost says:

        Cukes!?? Didn’t you mean kook!?

      6. Common Sense says:

        Liberalism is a mental disorder. Maybe Obama can fix you of this disorder in his health plan.

      7. ERIC BAXTER says:


        And I seriously doubt that you are ‘the man’, or any semblance of a man. You are just another sniveling, llily-livered jellyfish Lib suffering from delusions of adequacy.
        Go pound sand, you waste of oxygen.

    2. jes2 says:

      “The Man”.


      YOU are the one that is going to be jammed back under a rock, left-wristie.

      This country finally GETS IT, and you and your ilk are now an endangered species.

    3. Alice Polarbear says:

      But Michael Moore WOULDN’T film such a commentary, because it doesn’t fit his leftist narrative,

  6. Not1tojudge says:

    Wow really?! Someone got shot and police say “IT COULD BE GANG RELATED”. That’s the word COULD BE. The person is shot and right away the police put on the news “it could be gang-related” and the public go viral with that information. Don’t judge so fast.

    1. The Judge says:

      I will make all the judgements I want. Take your pc attitude and put it where the sun don’t shine.

      1. Bob Brown says:

        Agreed. This was clearly mexican on mexican violence. This is what our open southern border has brought us.

    2. jeff says:

      Clearly, you have friends in the gangs, right? This has NOTHING to do with judging, and everything to do with law enforcement using obvious hunches and tracking down leads. No provocation, no argument, just immediately shoot someone in the head….what are the chances it’s NOT gang-related? Seriously, use your head.

    3. Ivan Yurkenov says:

      Yo, Not1judge, let’s say that you’re smart enough to be a Las Vegas odds-maker…based on victim and shooter are both “late-teen or early-twenties”, the act occurs at noon in front of a busy McDonald’s restaurant and appears to be a classic “execution-style” shooting, based on these facts, what odds suggest it to be gang-related? Huh, einstein?


    4. janice turn says:

      they didn’t judge libturd moron !~ – hence the word “could”

    5. vegas vic says:

      oh yes, how dare they disparage the good name of gangs.

  7. cas says:

    no one cares what any of you think

    1. Paul Revere says:

      you cared enough to take the time to make such a self-defeating statement, didn’t you?

    2. Wally says:

      I care. Actually, reading what these/us morons post is an entertaining part of my boring day. And on that note I’m going to go find a hobby.

  8. Mitz says:

    This is what happens when TV stations and movie theaters allow Michael Moore to announce his lunatic ideas and people tend to believe his lies.

    1. bigdumbgod says:

      Where in this story is Michael Moore mentioned?

      1. stonewall foy says:

        what do you mean, “where is mikkkael moore?” isn’t he the guy who inspired this incident with his patriotic films? surely this is just another incident where guns pull their own triggers? right?

    2. DRalter says:

      What! Do you have air between your ears.

  9. Leo says:

    Its right next to the mental hospital, just sayin

    1. Dee Bunker says:

      No it isn’t Leo – do you even know what city you’re in?

      1. amber says:

        actually there is a mental holding facility at valley medical. All hospitals have them.


    That is precisely why Guns should not be carried by private citizens

    1. Guns Don't Fire Themselves says:

      This is precisely why guns SHOULD be carried by private citizens. The criminals will still have guns when you outlaw guns. But sadly, this man is dead because he had no way to defend himself. Had he been armed, and properly aware of his surroundings, he would have had a shot. Instead, he’s like the rest of the sheep who hope that if/when this day comes, a cop might actually be close enough to help and paying attention.

      1. DRalter says:

        Yeah, the open carry law in Arizona really helped Giffords.

      2. Patriot Alpha says:

        When seconds count the police are just minutes away. Why should I outsource my protection to someone else? Could the cops have prevented this? They are very good at marking off crime scenes and collecting evidence but do they really protect you? I’m proud to carry a .45 and a b.u.g. and I always carry! It is not only my right as an American, but it is my duty!

      3. Ivan Yurkenov says:

        Had I been lunching there, packing and strapping, the police most likely would have an arrest. That or possibly a body, either way, the case would be closed.


      4. terry says:

        The open carry law sure did not hurt giffords. She would have been shot anyway. EVERY citizen should be able to carry a gun and bounties should be put on illegal aliens and gangmembers.

    2. Bill O'Rights says:

      this was likely an illegal gun used for a murder and probably by felon who has lost his right to carry a gun. He doesn’t give a damn about gun laws. You dopes want to penalize law-abiding citizens and take away our right to self-defense while leaving illegal gun in the hands of people like this. This is not a gun control issue, this is a murder case.

    3. Taxpayer says:

      Do you know what happens when the citizens give up their arms? You lose your rights.

      “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” — (Thomas Jefferson)

      1. HAVEHADENOUGH says:

        Idiots! No guns! this is not the Wild Wild West.

      2. Bill in Tennessee says:

        Um… apparently it IS the wild, wild west. San Jose is in the west… with all the gangs and thugs, it’s pretty wild. Even the so-called “wild west” had a regulated and orderly society, and because everyone went armed (with GUNS) violence was fairly rare, despite all the movies you may have seen that depict something very different. The wild west would have been a much safer place than San Jose is today….and all because of (GASP!!) guns.

      3. yomama says:

        If everyone there was packin’ the perp would have been popped before he could have got away. Case closed!
        People carry guns not because it’s oiur right, but because the cops are inept or their hands are tied by red-tape. The cops are not CSI, thats hollywood. They’re morew like the clowns on Duke’s of hazard or Barney Fife. If everyone packed the Gangsta’s and other criminals would think alot harder before shootin someone.

      4. Rowdy Boots says:




      This is precisely why guns should be carried by private citizens. I don’t know why you scared little sheep can’t figure out that this guy would have had a gun regardless of the law.

      Why don’t we just outlaw murder?

    5. Dyler Turden says:

      What a stupid and poorly thought out statement. Do you personally have something against freedom, free will, and the right to defend yourself?

    6. Bloodaxe says:

      Of course not! Only illegal aliens and criminals should be armed. The rest of us are just sheep.

    7. SeanDoe says:

      Oh, by that logic, maybe we should have Knife Control too. And we could control every other inanimate object that has contributed to a death too. So stupid. Gun laws would only be followed by law biding citizens, not criminals.

    8. stonewall foy says:

      Dear Have Had Enough,
      i am one of x number of million (loaded) gun owners who did not commit a crime today, yesterday or EVER BEFORE … (weird, huh?).

      i imagine you would sue a private gun toting citizen, however, for saving your life or property from violence or destruction, given the rather slim chance.

      do you know why the Japanese didn’t invade after Pearl Harbor?

      i wish you the best, you’re gonna need it!

  11. spankie says:

    Of course it is gang related. Check the 7-11 tapes. I am sure that the guy bought a “Rock Star” before he cowardly shot someone in the back.

    1. american-american says:

      7-11? Great……Now you are involving the Indians too?

      1. Wooch says:

        7-11 … Indians … That is FUNNY!

  12. FameMonster says:

    Wow, this “gang” stuff is getting worse and worse by the month…..

    1. Cyndy Frease says:

      Tell me about it I wouldn’t even let my daughter wear a read undershirt today because I am so afraid of all of the retaliation going on right now.

  13. Asiong says:

    Drop those criminals in the middle of Pacific Ocean and if they survive they are free man.

  14. janetta says:

    I agree. The police think everything that happens in this city is “gang related”. What about all those people that hang out there at that McDonalds, trying to sell their methadone to people? Don’t be so quick to judge and blame gangsters when no one knows….

    1. bigdumbgod says:

      Bunch of cracksters hangin around that corner, due to the halfway house just behind the McDonald’s and liquor store. Always been like that.

      1. stonewall foy says:

        always been like what? you’re assuming that “cracksters,” halfway houses, mcdonalds and liquor stores have always been in existence. i suggest you consult a dictionary or thesaurus before speaking or writing, since what comes out of you in the form of communication isn’t exactly clear in that respect.

        first problem: “bigdumbgod” is a name for someone who believes in what? obviously not any monotheistic religion. that then invites the assumption that you’re of the secularist persuasion – which would then invite the assumption that you have exacting standards as regards education … which isn’t the case (made clear by your misuse of the English language). i guess i’m trying to politely point out that you’re an idiot.

        second problem: your statement is nonsense.

    2. The Judge says:

      @janetta, Don’t be so quick to judge and blame people trying to sell their methadone, when no one knows…..So take your own advice, moron.

  15. Bruce says:

    The McDonald’s is across the street from Valley Medical Center, which is a regular hospital — not a mental institution.

    Neither Obama nor Michael Moore had anything to do with this, & anyone who claims otherwise is simply a partisan nitwit troll.

    1. shuddup says:

      Bruce – San Fran – ’nuff said.

  16. Vedk says:

    im just saying you try to kill someone dont do it across the street from valley med
    hope dude makes it

    1. FM says:

      Don’t do it anywhere !!

  17. gangsters_suck says:

    MOST shootings in San Jose are GANG RELATED, so of course they suspect this one to be gang related. Even someone with no high school can connect those dots!

    1. google says:

      ya I heard they were originally confused since the perp used the well known Girl Scout M.O. in the shooting 😉 – man, people are dishonestly “ignorant”

  18. Philip Scharfy says:

    This is what happens when you’re denied a toy with your happy meal.

  24. steve says:

    Yeah, this multiculturalism and tolerance for diversity is working beautifully…

  25. Hank Warren says:

    Illegal immigrants and their crimes, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our right:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress.
    (Last link of Banned Book):

    1. David says:

      Like I said last time. Right are an artificial creation of the government the make the little guy think he actually has power.

      If you want to find what your “God given” rights are, go to Africa and sit in the middle of a pride of lions. They will inform you of your “Real” rights.

    2. DRalter says:

      If you know that he is illegal then you must know where he is!
      Did you hear that the Westboro Baptist Church is free to protest funerals!
      Oh, by the way the “banned” book “America Deceived II” is available on Amazon, you can get it for your Kindle too!

      Apparently they forgot to confiscate the shooters gun.
      Never been molested by the TSA.
      Yeah, sweep out the Tea Party so they will not destroy this country.

    3. hankwarrenisabot says:

      SYSAD you have been hit by the Hank Warren SPAMBOT

  26. sharon says:

    I think that is the point. Everyone blames the tea party or the right without any evidence of a relation to the incident. It was meant as an example of the stupidity of such associations. Get it?

  27. Jason Wallis says:

    Another uneducated Obama voter strikes again. I”m sure Holder will refuse to charge this guy as well because he isn’t a white male American.

    funny how, if it was a negro doing this, we wouldn’t be hearing about his complexion or racial identity

    you stay honest, CBS.

    1. Anunakisan says:

      that would be a wrong comment to make …

    2. DRalter says:

      Actually, if you Google “black male shooting” you will find plenty of articles describing the shooter as a “black male”

  30. Jessica says:

    How many left wing lunatics do we have to see gun people down before something is done about them? They are threatening our politician’s lives and one even shot out the window of a GOP office last night. These lefties are dangerous, God please save their souls.

    1. DRalter says:

      The righties are just as bad as the lefties.

      “They’ve been gunned down in Tucson, shot to death at the Pentagon, and blown away at the Holocaust Museum, as well as in Wichita, Knoxville, Pittsburgh, Brockton, and Okaloosa County, Florida.”

      Total body count for these incidents: 19 dead, 26 wounded.

      1. Kat says:

        Sorry to alter your body count but facts are a pesky things.
        The Tucson shooter Louchner was in fact a DEM, a Huffpo & DailyKos blogger, and a former supporter & volunteer of Giffords, so switch those over to the lefty-loon column.

        It is also comedic how the right is constantly tagged with Catholic pedophile priests and the KKK too, both of which are predominately DEM organizations. But then again, why worry over facts when you can just make up BS and blog it.

      Hey now, it COULD have been brown on brown just as easily(you knew it was going to be one of those two options)……..fortunately, no tax payers were involved!

    My guess is that this is one illegal immigrant shooting another illegal immigrant. No NEWS here. The Americans in California had best deal with this pathetic situation or it will deal with them. You got in this mess so don’t ask other States to bail you out.

  35. Bill in Tennessee says:

    Once upon a time in the West, a bounty was placed on wolves and coyotes and both of those species were nearly eradicated. If San Jose (or any other municipality or state) would place a bounty on gang bangers and illegals, I suspect those sub-species might also become nearly extinct in the US. Just sayin’…. something to think about.

  39. Peace Lover says:

    How does a house-by-house extermination and relocation program sound? All gang bangers and wannabees get moved to, say, Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean where they can fight it out. Meanwhile, back in the USA… crime rates plummet.

  40. trayz says:

    Yes I agree no guns for fanatic mental patients like you, for all law abiding citizens may they be armed to defend themselves from repeat violent criminals released by pro crime progressive ACLU judges responsible for thousands murdered by repeat violent offenders each year.

  41. janetta says:

    I think everybody needs to SHUT UP ALREADY about who did it or what rights we have as Americans. You all sound like little kids………

  43. Speedypete says:

    California has the strictest gun control in the nation so this story is a fake. But the California laws only demean and make defenseless the law abiding taxpaying citizens.

    looking at the hat on the ground, it was a ‘W’ wich is westside, there is a gang in SJ called westside mobb, im sre gangtask should figure that out already. I dont think hes supporting the washington nationals baseball team.

      maybe the ‘W’ means he’s a Bush supporter! It’s Bush’s fault!!!

      Can you say NEW-CLEE-ARE?

    When they find the shooter, they should put him through a tree limb shredder….slowly!!!

  46. jnsesq says:

    Notice how all this “factual” reporting omits the ethnicity(ies) of the respective parties? (Why should it matter? Because it does! Look around. And if I can reach accurate conclusions based on this scant information, don’t ya see, Houston? We have a PROBLEM!)

    So tell me why again it is “racist” to report the facts. Seems to me that the “racism” here lies with their purposeful omission, but I suppose I’m just another racist angry-white-male Tea Partier for daring to ask the question.

  47. Cuttimer says:

    Any time an illegal kills an American citizen all Federal officials responsible for passing laws and enforcing the security of our borders(this doesn’t mean merely legalizing illegals) have blood on their hands. This does include the current president as well.

  48. Michael Johnson says:

    Cops cant say it is gang related because its going to turn out that it was a Narco hit and any bad press about Narco related stuff is going to look bad on the president because he is facilitating the violence by allowing the ATF to run high powered guns into Mexico under their surveillance. We are being sold down river by our Law Enforcement people…

    Wow. I think they should take all these hip hop gang bangers and find an empty stadium, put them all in it, lock the doors and let them have at it. Last man standing. Any of these other wanna be Vaquero’s, well lets give them as a present to the Islamic radicals for bomb training. Here, get your 70 some odd virgins by blowing yourselves up with these useless dregs of society. I am so glad the liberals are in charge of California, you can see why it is flushing itself right down the toilet. The border has the security strength of swiss cheese, and Obama is on his way to Rio after picking his NCAA picks. Ha! No wonder we’re getting laughed at. Liberals like him are ruining America and this little spurt in gang crime (please if its not that its drugs)is just an example of more “Community Organizing”

    Just another white guy shoot randomly by another white guy, they were fighting for a hamburger. Nice hat, part of calvin klein club.

  54. Jack says:

    “Classic execution style” means the vic is on his knees with the perp behind him shooting downward. This was not “classic execution style”. It was walk up and shoot him in the head before he knew what was happening.

    I live near where this took place. There is no doubt based on the location that it was a Mexican gang killing. It was in graffiti land.

  58. Damon says:

    At least further south toward Oxnard, most gang reports are….if its a stabbing, then it’s Mexican. Shooting, its a black. Just when I think I understand what methods these little turds use, they change it up. So are Mexicans shooting now too? They need some serious organization, it’s hard enough reading stupid grafitti tags, how do they expect taxpayers to understand their lame ass writing and claims. Ship them all off to work farms, or better yet….send them in to fix the Japan reactors.

  59. Mason says:

    Obviously a public employee union hit. Tip to police: check SEIU.

  60. Chris Ford says:


    funny how, if it was a negro doing this, we wouldn’t be hearing about his complexion or racial identity

    you stay honest, CBS
    Sadly, because the liberal media has adapted a “narrative policy” of not identifying blacks by race in crimes….the purpose has sort of been defeated by public perception.
    Meaning that if the perp is not clearly identified as white, hispanic, Asian, native American – the assumption from lack of racial descriptors of the killer/robber/thug story is the assailant MUST be black.

  61. john says:

    This could not have happened, San Francisco is rigidly anti gun and has laws that disarmed everyone. so the the possible shooting did not happen.

  62. excaliph says:

    San Jose, it used to be a nice city…..

    Oh wait, that’s right, it’s always been an armpit.

  63. bbjw says:

    Buy them more ammo.

  64. Francisco Franco says:

    Also try new McDonald’s Gangland-Style shootings.

    A Hispanic male. What a shock. Most Hispanic immigrants (as opposed to those Hispanics who become productive citizens) in general refuse to assimilate to our society, refuse to abandon their culture, and drive up the crime rate wherever they live with their stupid machismo drug culture. Mexico could be a wealthy country except for the disorganized Third Worlders who perpetuate their own misery.

  65. AZ Guy says:

    Wow its a good thing cali has all those gun laws or it might have happened…oh wait, san jose IS in cali….hmmm

  66. yeayea says:

    Gotta love diversity. Coming soon to your neighborhood.

    Good thing we let more illegals walk into the country every day.

  67. Bryan says:

    Simple solution.. Do as about 80% of the world does. Convicted of killing someone. You are taken to prison and shot in the head, or had your head cut off. You do something other than killing someone, you get hard labor, no TV, no weightroom, no free anything.
    But this will never happen in the US because of all the whimps the feeling these people can be fixed.
    Look at it like this… Population control, cleans up the prison system, which save money.

  68. Patriot Alpha says:

    You know when seconds count the police are just minutes away. Why should I outsource my protection to someone else? Could the cops have prevented this? They are very good at marking off crime scenes and collecting evidence but do they really protect you? I’m proud to carry a .45 and a b.u.g. and I always carry! It is not only my right as an American, but it is my duty!

  69. John says:

    This is proof that the law only stops law abiding citizens, not criminals, from carrying guns.

  70. bigbiz2 says:

    Just Mexicans being Mexicans…Time to start calling all cities in the southwest and Cali ” Ciudads. “Ciudad” San Jose sounds appropriate

  71. KipNoxzema says:

    This is why we need the cops to pay more attention to gangs and violent crimes. They spend way too much time conducting prostitution stings, speed traps, and arresting little Johnny for downloading a movie.

    1. Mister Smirks says:

      Cops are too busy joining unions to protect and serve.

  72. DRalter says:

    Fact, the article labels the shooter as “Hispanic” or “White”.

  73. bigbiz2 says:

    Looks like” Tio” McDonalds “Mi Encanta” outreach to the Hispanic community is really starting to make them feel at home..
    Good thing Taco Bell quit using the chihuaua in their commercials otherwise they would feel more at home there as well.

  75. Nat X says:

    What a bunch of fools decrying about “good citizens” right to carry guns. Most of you p***ys wouldn’t have the balls to take another life even when faced with a threat. It’s easy to puff your chest and act bravado behind the anonymity of the internet while your fat ass sits in the safety of your million dollar home or corner office, but if you’ve never shot anyone, you don’t know anything about it… you think even in self-defense you feel good about taking a life? You craven idiots have no idea what your talking about. All you’ll do is end up getting yourself killed by someone who isn’t afraid to pull the trigger.

    Meaning that if the perp is not clearly identified as white, hispanic, Asian, native American – the assumption from lack of racial descriptors of the killer/robber/thug story is the assailant MUST be black.”

    Actually the perp must be white- since the WHITE RUN MEDIA will never come out and state “white male brown hair”…usually it will couch the description by just saying “medium built man with brown hair or ponytail”- in an attempt to “WHITEWASH” the incident- pretty much how the history of violence and thuggery committed by whites has been swept under the carpet….Just like now certain people (read:white) are going on and on about the Japan’s civility during this crisi compared to that involving Katrina but yet most if not all rioting done in this country for YEARS was done by whites including such “lovely events” as maimings/burningS at the stake which were treated as white family outings to include women and children…..soooo

  77. logcabnnut says:

    “The gunman, who remained on the loose Wednesday evening, was described by police as a white male in his late teens or early 20s with a light complexion.”

    Oh no stop the press!!!!

  78. Wooch says:

    Oh, my – just more hard-working, family-oriented illegal Latinos here to work and pay taxes. I’m sure the shooting was just a misunderstanding and could have been prevented by 1) a federal program 2) raising taxes on the wealthy 3) empowering unions 4) allowing them to vote (legally) and 5) more diversity training. {8^|

    1. Teabagger69 says:

      Well, it couldn’t hurt.

      1. slurping tea in 2012 says:

        Pssst! Your liberal tolerance is showing 😉 You obviously need to pay more taxes and enroll in diversity training.

  79. WASP says:

    You SF Gay Area liberals need to be more tolerant and inclusive of Mexican illegals…you need to welcome more into your community….or you’re racist.

  80. bigbiz2 says:

    You know it’s a Mexican ..but you fart smellers out there need to know that Hispanics are considered White. Why do you think when they do their racisl bean counting stats they use the “non hispanic White” term.
    As far as “hate crimes “…the anti Whte media and DOJ will call a Mexican “White “when it comes to charging “hate crimes” so as to make Whites spike in hate crime stats

  81. Build a Wall says:

    it was a mexican.

  82. Zipperhead says:

    It’s George Bush’s fault.

  83. Jeff DanLeoni says:

    I’ll bet he can be rehabilitated. All he needs is love and flowers and some liberal therapy.

  84. steve says:

    Happens all the time with those people. The shame was that not one person did anything except watch.

  85. Truth Troll says:

    No one cares about gang bangers killing each other unless a Real American is injured or killed in the process.

  86. JustinC says:

    Nutty CA. There was no one around legally carrying concealed to blow that jerk away and stop this.

    1. davec says:


  87. Flip and Glib says:

    This is just a sanctuary city reaping the benefits of being a sanctuary city. What else do you expect when crime is culturally accepted?

  88. Sgt. Waterboard says:

    This was clearly an angry democrat taking left-wing terrorism to the next level and actually carrying through with a death threat.

  89. Bob says:

    I’d bet that there is not one armed Security Gard or Cop guarding the school children in the area. This nut could just as well have walked through a school killing kids. Only an Armed person or citizen has a chance to stop a person like the shooter. Democrats are responsible for stripping people of their right to protect themselves.
    NEVER EVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. Mike Landes says:

    Guns should be outlawed in California . . . . . Oh wait . . . . . They already are. Well then, they ought to make a law that it’s illegal to shoot someone . . . . . Oh wait, they have that law too. Maybe they should have a law that says you can’t belong to a criminal gang or partake in it’s illegal activities . . . Phhhhhhhht … That law already exists too.

    Maybe we should pass a law that says, people that obey the law, can carry a weapon to defend and protect themselves and those that they love, from people that don’t obey the alllllllll the laws that criminals don’t obey. OH WAIT.. . . . That;s just too simple . . . . .

    Its in the water…..must be?

  94. Harry Reems says:

    Fatherless welfare trash. Questions?

  95. Redhoss says:

    Sounds like complete degradation of society to me. Simple crime in daylight with plenty of witnesses… no arrests. There is no situation where gun control could of prevented this act. 88.8 REGISTERED guns for every 100 people in the U.S. The damage has been done. If anything, this proves that California could benefit from being militarized and locked down. At the very least, more guns need to be in the hands of people willing to use them to defend fellow citizens (plainclothes officers on every corner would be a start).

    Based on the assumption that this is gang on gang and not gang on random target: None of this would stop moronic gang on gang shootings. Though most could probably agree that two dead thugs is better than one.

  96. lms says:

  98. davec says:

    Lemme Play the Liberals game and “make a connection”

    Obama is about implementing the US Small Arms Treaty (aka HIS AGENDA) to disarm America. They (he) are seizing on the Arizona tragedy to push their unconstitutional agenda.

    SO, this shooting must be related to the drive by politicall ymotivated shooting at the RNC headquarters in Washington DC.

    SO, the radical, hate filled, politically motivated DANGEROUS Liberals are to blame for creating a crisis.

    This shooter did so to invent a crisis, hes a Liberal.

  99. mauibucky says:

    If the shooter is Hispanic, he’s a ganbanger and should be imprisoned. If he’s white, he’s a patriot just expressing his 2nd amendment rights and should be given a job as a commentator on Fox News.

  100. The Bruce says:

    Shooting was totally unnecessary. McD’s has enough chicken nuggets for everyone.

  101. I.M. says:

    It’s the same, more and more and more, as more and more of these stories come out. Once the names of virtually all those involved are released, it reads like a Tijuana phone book.

    Could this just be ‘coincidence,’ again, or (as is the conformist, knee-jerk reaction), am I a ‘racist’ for pointing out the obvious that no one wants to admit?

  102. Emme says:

    I used to work in the Florida state prison. It was an election year. All the inmates were for the Democratic candidate. All the guards were Republicans. Just telling you what happened. Come to your own conclusions.

    SO Harry, does that mean all men that shoot people are welfare cases? That’s so in the dark ages. Crawl out from that rock your under and open your eyes…..

  108. Mike Rummel says:

    I like how a story on someone who almost got killed just suddenly devolves into racist B.S. that’s disguised into a pseudo-political argument in which neither side will win. I hope this person makes a full recovery, and the perpetrator is brought to justice.

    Having said that, on a side note, all Republicans and Democrats are stupid, and people who follow or worship them are even more so. This is what happens when people allow a one-party state to masquerade as a “two-party” state, and all dissenting opinions are treated as garbage. Eat me, porcupines!

  109. Anonymous says:

    When did a needless tragedy become a political discussion! First off, this McDonalds location is a block away from a Methadone clinic which operates from 7am – 11am every day. Low brow people solicit inside for hours in groups of 3+ & sell drugs there all the time inside/outside. Before this happened, there used to be an outside seating area which was removed & the 30 minute seating limit inside was being enforced by management. It is more likely that the shooting was a result of a drug deal gone bad or something to that effect. I still don’t see how this is POLITICAL!

    1. Mike Rummel says:

      Gee, I thought it was kind of obvious with the variations of “Left wingers suck” vs. “Right Wingers suck” being shown above. I was just pointing out the absurdities of it all. Someone either gets killed or almost gets killed and it’s the fault of (fill in the blank of whoever’s in charge) that nothing was done to prevent such a thing from happening. Then the thinly disguised racial slurs come out, followed by “Republicans suck” and “Democrats suck”. Am I wrong in pointing out a pattern that seems to be repeated everywhere I look?

  110. Ok gang members…I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the whole gang thing is old already. it’s time to grow up and have a real life. no one cares how hard you think you are or how awesome your guns and tattoos are. In fact, the guns make you look like a chump who can only talk trash with one, and the tattoos make you look like a zoo animal. Oh wait a moment…what was i thinking? Gang members are too stupid to read, much less know how to operate a computer. All they know is death and destruction. Here is an idea. Do the world a favor and go kill yourselves. The world would be a better place without you. Thanks.

  111. leslie says:

    i think its pathetic to judge some one just because he got shot.
    I knew him and from what i saw was that he was going to school and coming home to family and trying his best to stay out the streets he was about to graduate and its very sad that most of you don’t even care…and ya the killer is still out there, i do hope they find him and if not i seriously hope he lives with the thought of killing someone who had a whole life ahead of him for the rest of his damn life,
    all my prayers go out to the Cortez family

    i feel bad fr the people who make this choices in life to be gangstaters i knew the shotter and the victim but never really had close interactin wit them

    Its true u can’t even wear a color with out worrying bout getting shoot , I lost my nephew to this stupidity and sorry to say but they obviously labeled him and he was a target , why because he didn’t look like he was straight from the border , I’m Mexican but I hate that this retartds come and join gangs and well what happen to using ur fist ! I guarantee he would of whooped their ass . But I do think if they going to shoot I’m not saying it right but do it amongst themselves scared ass cowards , may Jr r.I.p!!!

  114. bob says:

    Crazy, sad, frustrating, funny, infuriating, mindless, weird, pointless, interesting, confusing, and everything else I failed to mention about all the comments and opinions from all kinds of people. Even my comment. Why do we all feel the need to comment on everything? Are we all searching for others who think and feel like we do so we don’t feel as alone in the world? Its a trip how much the world has become more and more digitized. We are all becoming more detached from the physical world and more attached to the digital one. We all have become just a comment, a face, a picture, a phrase, a poke, a twit, and a text in an infinitely growing and all encompassing digital reality. Crazy!
    Things happen in this world that we can’t understand or explain, they just happen. And tomorrow more things will happen. What can you do?
