San Jose - A shooting inside a parking garage at San Jose State University on Tuesday night left three people dead, including the suspected gunman, authorities said.

Investigators do not believe the shooting was random, although they have not released a possible motive. School spokesperson Pat Harris said it did not appear to be gang-related.

"Officers realised upon arrival that this was an isolated incident," she said.

Students on the rest of the Northern California campus were never in danger, according to school officials.

Authorities have not said whether the shooting victims and the suspect were students at the school. Their identities have not been released.

Campus police were alerted to the shooting on the fifth floor of the campus's main garage just after 20:30, authorities said. The six-story structure also houses the school's student services center.

"I'm just surprised it happened here," Josh Tullo, 30, a senior, told the San Jose Mercury News. "I never thought it would happen at this school."
