San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo confirmed that two victims had died in a since-deleted tweet.

Two people were killed and three others were wounded after a stabbing attack Sunday night at a church in San Jose, California.

The SJPD said a number of "unhoused" individuals had been brought inside the church in the hours prior 'get them out of the cold'.

The police did not confirm an arrest or provide further information on a motive for the stabbing. Three other adult men were taken to hospitals and were in serious but stable condition, police said Monday.

The report said a rally by Tesla on Monday earned Musk about $7.2 billion, bringing his new net worth to $127.9 billion. Gates's net worth of $127.7 billion would be much higher had he not donated so prodigiously to charity over the years.

Each of the five victims was in some way linked to the downtown church's homeless outreach program, sources tell San Jose Inside.

The suspect has been arrested.

"We have one suspect in custody for last night's homicide", the San Jose Police Department said in a Twitter post, adding that more details would be released later. "If you ever felt you don't fit anywhere else, come to Grace and you'll find a home!"

Those injured had been both inside and outside the church, which acts as an overnight shelter for the homeless, the station said. Under COVID-19 restrictions, the church had about 50 beds available. She blogs at The Migraine Runner.
