SAN JOSE -- Police are investigating the motive behind two Thursday night shootings that happened around the same time in East San Jose, but officials said they do not appear to be gang-related.
At 10:19 a.m. police received a report of a gunshot victim at Flanigan Drive and Alvin Avenue, and officers learned that there was a second victim nearby. Police said the victims are men in their 30s, said San Jose police spokesman Officer Albert Morales.
One of the men had wounds that were initially thought to be life-threatening, Morales said, but his condition has stabilized and he is expected to survive.
Morales said investigators have not confirmed that the shootings are related.
On Friday, Morales said there is "nothing to lead us to believe" the shootings were the result of gang activity, but no further information on the circumstances was available.
