7:30, about 7:41, they got the first reports that something was happening out there, that shots were fired. about five or six minutes later the police swarmed that area on lauren way, only a block way from homestead avenue, where most of the action in the search initially took place. now, because of the actions that took place, there will be an investigation involved with the officer-involved shooting aspect of this. but in terms of what happened, the sheriff talked about the fact that there was three deputies in two different units on routine patrol in the area, but aware that shareef allman was on the loose and they were the ones that spotted him, and even though the sheriff could not go into a lot of details, this is what she said she could talk about for now. >> the suspect was armed with a handgun. all three of our deputies that were present at the scene fired shots and the subject was pronounced dead at the scene.
>> again, the officer-involved shooting of this is being investigated by the department of public safety and that means the sheriff's department has not been able to talk about certain aspects, including whether the suspect fired at the deputies and some of the -- and how he was able to escape the manhunt. tara marietta is in the area right now and she joins us with some reaction there. tara. >> reporter: thank you, robert. that's right, we're waiting for the coroner to arrive here p an investigation is underway obviously that will take quite some time to process this scene out here. look behind me, you can notice everything that's going on in the distance. this is the street where three sheriff's deputies shot and killed shareef allman. we were one street over on homestead where the suspected gunman was last seen when we heard gunfire around 7:30 this morning.

his livelihood, then he was going to end theirs. and we didn't know -- >> she said her son thought allman was just talking and never expected him to hurt anyone. she's been friend with allman for 25 years, and he was always a very lovable, likable person who did not drink or smoke and had many friends. a ployee wounded in the shooting talked to the san jose mercury news about what happened. he said allman thought everybody was after him because he's african-american. as a union representative, he says coworkers were worried about his safety record and took it to management. he says he told allman days ago that he would no longer represent him because "no one has ever had so many accidents in the company like you have." and during a meeting on monday, management asked workers to document safety issues related to allman. he says someone must have told allman about that meeting.
