SAN JOSE, Calif. —
Three people are in jail Tuesday after brandishing a submachine gun and robbing several people near Evergreen Valley High School in San Jose on Monday, according to police.
Police said the victims were near the school when a car drove up to them just after 11 p.m. The people in the car had guns -- including a TEC-9 -- and stole the victims' belongings.
After robbing the victims, the suspects fled, police said.
Police were pursuing the suspects near Qiumby Road and South White Road when the suspects abandoned their car and fled on foot, police said.
The suspects ran in to a nearby neighborhood, where the Police Department's Special Operations Metro unit and officers with police dogs searched for them yard by yard.
A Santa Clara County sheriff's helicopter aided in the search, police said.
Eventually, three suspects were found and booked into the county jail on charges of evading arrest and possessing an assault weapon.
Police Sgt. Jason Dwyer said the fact that the suspects had a submachine gun is unusual.
They're not very common," Dwyer said. "Those types of weapons were built for one thing: the human being... they're not for game hunting."
