A man in his 30s was fatally shot in the chest this morning in San Jose.

The body was noticed by a person who was driving to work around 4:25 a.m. at Murtha Drive and Capitol Avenue.

San Jose police homicide investigators are at the scene and police are canvassing the neighborhood.

"Right now we are doing a complete canvas of the neighborhood. So we are banging on doors and talking to neighbors. What we have determined is that about 2 a.m. a couple of neighbors heard a disturbance in the area -- we believe it is related to this homicide," said San Jose Police Lt. Mike Sullivan.

The homicide marks the ninth in San Jose this year.
