 San Jose Killing Spree: Disturbing Details of Violent Crime RevealedGoogle Maps

A violent killing spree in the San Jose and Milpitas, plunged the community into shock and sorrow, as the alleged assailant, Kevin Parkourana, viciously attacked random victims in a series of stabbings, carjackings, and intentional vehicular collisions, killing three people and injuring several others, according to KRON4.

The horrifying 90-minute crime spree began at 3:11 p.m., when Parkourana, a 31-year-old San Jose resident with a history of arrests and felony convictions, brutally stabbed his first victim, Jose Montoya-Garcia, in the neck and chest before stealing his vehicle. The rampage continued with Parkourana allegedly stabbing and carjacking two more victims, driving stolen vehicles over pedestrians, and even hiding near Milpitas High School’s graduation ceremony before finally being apprehended by the police at 6:15 p.m.

As more details emerge from the disturbing event, investigators are working to piece together the full extent of Parkourana’s rampage and the motives behind his actions. San Jose and Milpitas police departments have joined forces to connect the multiple violent incidents and multiple crashes aimed at pedestrians. The killings took place during broad daylight, making the violent spree even more shocking for local residents, meanwhile the police are yet to disclose any specific information about possible connections between Parkourana and other violent incidents in the city on the same day.

While the community grapples with the aftermath of the tragic events, local leaders are expressing their condolences for the victims and their families, and also offering their support for the ongoing investigation. San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan took to Twitter to share his feelings about the violent crimes, stating, "I am sickened by the senseless violence that took place in our city tonight. There are no words that can convey how sorry I am to the victims’ loved ones whose lives have been forever altered. San Jose mourns with you," (Hoodline).
