CHILLING footage shows the moment police found a gunman’s slumped body after he killed nine of his co-workers and himself at a railyard in San Jose.
Samuel Cassidy, 57, opened fire during a union meeting at two Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority buildings last Wednesday.
Footage shows sheriffs hunting Cassidy who was reportedly armed with a gun, MailOnline reports.
Cops climb a set of stairs and ask for a supervisor's keycard so they can gain access to the railyard building.
After searching many rooms, officers heard a gunshot and a cop is heard saying: “I got somebody down inside.”
They move forward cautiously and see a man slumped in a chair with a gun in his hand.
It's not known if Cassidy knew police was closing in on him.
The footage comes just days after cops found a suspicious device at the gunman’s home.
Completed Molotov cocktails were reportedly found at the house but did not explode, according to ABC7, and were instead destroyed by a bomb squad.
The gunman callously gunned down nine of his colleagues at two Santa Clara Valley Transportation buildings on Wednesday morning before taking his own life as law enforcement moved in.
Rail signal maintainer Kirk Bertolet, who has worked for the VTA for 12 years, told KGO that he was in the office next to the break room where workers had gathered for a shift change when the shooting started.
He said: "It was just several bursts, it was series of shots, then another series of shots and another series of shots."
