San Jose police closed off Cassidy’s home following the incident as FBI and ATF agents worked to collect evidence.

“What we’re operating under now, and I’m not sure this isn’t going to change, is that he set some kind of device to go off at a certain time probably to coincide with his shooting,” Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said during an appearance Thursday morning on NBC’s “Today.”
