SAN JOSE -- Authorities have identified a 17-year-old boy as the victim of a suspected gang-related shooting that also wounded a 14-year-old boy in East San Jose over the weekend.
Jorge Brambila, of San Jose, was found gravely wounded about 9:10 p.m. Sunday in the 1000 block of Audubon Drive, near McLaughlin Avenue and Story Road. Brambila died at the scene, marking the city's fourth homicide of the year.
Police also found a 14-year-old boy suffering from at least one gunshot wound. The boy was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.
Neither suspects nor a motive have been announced by police, but investigators are treating the killing as a gang-related attack. The Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force launched its crisis response protocol, which deploys a combination of resources from the city, community and social-service organizations and schools aimed at addressing an attack's impact and tamping down possible retaliation.
