shooting. the police say the shooter went to modesto and killed a woman, about two hours after the first shooting on ramsey drive. her name has not been released, not anything about their relationship either, so a lot of questions there. police just say she was 29 years old. so the chp ended up chasing the suspect as he traveled back to san jose last night. at one point he had a woman and two children in the car with him. then he let them out. then later crashed the car in san jose and headed to a home on bendorf drive where we saw the standoff. he barricaded into a shed this morning and officers say he fired a gun during the chase and more shots from the property as police surrounded it. then pointed a gun at a special operations officer. that is when police shot him. >> we do want to share our and send condolences to the people involved with the tragic series of events. we are also very, very lucky and thankful none of our officers were shot or hit or were
