A motive for the slayings is unknown. The family member said the suspect is the child’s uncle and nephew of the woman killed. 

“It’s messed up…” Chinette Jenkins said through teary eyes. “And I don’t know what else to say.” 

The killings were San Jose’s 23rd and 24th homicides of this year. Jenkins said she saw the man a few days ago acting agitated and unsettled.

“Because he has a mental problem. If he doesn’t have any drugs, he acts crazy. Like he stole my tablet. My boyfriend’s laptop, he was looking to sell it to get dope, you know? He’s not right in the head. He’s not right at all,” she said. 

The San Jose Police Department said they will release more details. 

In a statement, Vista Apartments said their “hearts go out to the family and friends of our residents.”
