ABC affiliate KGO reports "Multiple people have been injured, said VTA spokesperson Brandi Childress. She wasn't able to confirm the number of those shot or the extent of their injuries."
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo just posted this tweet saying several people are being "treated."
A shooting at the VTA facility on Younger St has left several people being treated, but the situation is still being assessed. The shooter is no longer a threat, and the facility has been evacuated. I will update as more information becomes available.
