SAN JOSE (CBS SF) -- Police in the South Bay were busy Monday investigating a fatal stabbing in South San Jose and a separate shooting near San Jose State University that left one dead and one wounded.

San Jose police said officers responded to the 5200 block of Vera Lane just north of Monterey Road on a call of a person down at approximately 11:20 a.m. on Sunday. They located an adult female who had sustained at least one stab wound. Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The motive and circumstances surrounding the incident were still under investigation. The suspect was unidentified and remained at large.

The identity of the victim will be released by the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office after notifying next of kin. The fatal stabbing is the ninth homicide in San Jose this year.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant White #4104 or Detective Reckas #3440 of the San José Police Department's Homicide unit at 408-277-5283, or via email: 4104@sanjoseca.gov and/or 3440@sanjoseca.gov.

At around 3 a.m. Monday, officers were called to investigate reports of a shooting on South 10th St. near the eastern edge of the San Jose State campus.

Upon arrival, they found two shooting victims -- a man suffering from life-threatening injuries and a woman with lesser wounds. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment. Later Monday morning at around 10:40 a.m., San Jose police confirmed that the shooting is being investigated as a homicide after the male victim died.  

Additional details are forthcoming from police. The shooting is the tenth homicide in San Jose in 2022.
