San Francisco Bay Area Attacks
Kevin Parkourana is the suspect in the attacks that began Thursday afternoon in a San Jose shopping center parking lot and ended at another shopping center in the neighboring community of Milpitas, where police arrested him.
Parkourana is facing several felony and misdemeanor convictions, authorities said Friday. San Jose Police Chief Anthony Mata said that the attacks are just random. The suspect Parkourana has several felony and misdemeanor convictions spanning several years and it’s not yet clear why he was released given his criminal history.
Moreover, Mata said that they are working on each crime that he was convicted of to figure out what happened, and that’s something that we’re working with the district attorney’s office to figure out.
Kevin Parkourana Stabbing Incident
US News reported that San Jose police officials claimed that Parkourana stabbed two people during two carjackings in separate parking lots, leaving both people with life-threatening injuries.
According to San Jose Deputy Police Chief Steve Logorio Kevin Parkourana then allegedly attacked a pedestrian with a car in one of the parking lots, purposely struck two individuals standing outside a home, and later hit someone riding a scooter.
The two people Parkourana just randomly attacked outside the home had after the incident died.
About an hour and a half after the first stabbing took place, Parkourana allegedly committed another stabbing incident that occurred at a shopping center parking lot in neighboring Milpitas and the victim later died at a hospital, Milpitas Police Chief Jared Hernandez said.
A motive in the attacks has not been determined, Hernandez said.
Lastly, Hernandez said that the Detectives from the Milpitas Police Department and the San Jose Police Department continue to work collaboratively as they try to piece together the events that occurred and determine a motive behind Kevin Parkourana’s actions.
