Sheriff: Man Matching California Quarry Shooter Is Dead
SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a man matching the description of the California quarry shooting suspect is dead after being shot by law enforcement in a Silicon Valley neighborhood.
Santa Clara County Sheriff's Sgt. Jose Cardoza says the man was shot and killed around 7:30 a.m. Thursday.
Several media outlets earlier reported that the man who was shot was 47-year-old Shareef Allman, but Cardoza tells The Associated Press he can't confirm that.
The shooting took place in a Sunnyvale neighborhood about 5 miles east of Permanente Quarry, where Allman allegedly opened fire on his co-workers a day earlier. Three people died, and six were wounded.
Cardoza didn't immediately provide details on how the shooting unfolded.
