3 dead in stabbings, carjackings in San Jose area, police say

Three people were killed and more were injured Thursday during a “crime spree” of stabbings and vehicle collisions in the San Jose, California, area, officials say.

Police were able to take a suspect into custody after he carried out multiple “random” attacks and carjackings in the cities of San Jose and Milpitas, law enforcement said.

“We ended the crime spree,” Milpitas Police Chief Jared Hernandez said at a news conference Friday. “We were able to effectively prevent additional people from being injured.” 

The suspect, Kevin Parkourana, is in custody on multiple homicide charges and carjacking charges after surrendering to officers on the streets Thursday evening, police said.
