Did shooter Samuel Cassidy work at the VTA?

Samuel Cassidy, who shot himself after the incident, was a maintenance worker for VTA, police confirmed.

He allegedly “knew all of his victims well.”

He had worked there since at least 2012, having first arrived as a mechanic, according to the public payroll and pension database Transparent California.

The 57-year old was also confirmed as the owner of a house in the Ramblewood neighborhood of South San Jose, which caught fire after around the same time that the shooting took place.

Police later found a number of weapons inside the home with “hundreds of rounds of ammunition.”  

However, they have not yet publicly linked the arson call to the shooting.

His father, 88-year-old James Cassidy, told The Daily Beast that his son “seemed completely himself” in the days leading up to the shooting.

“He didn’t talk about his job or politics. I just found out he was dead and his house on fire and all that a minute ago,” he said.

“It’s really…. I really, really don’t want to… I guess I have to just kind of absorb it all myself. I don’t really have any information anyway, so… sorry.”
