SAN JOSE -- A teenage boy who was wounded in a drive-by shooting in front of an East San Jose school Tuesday night is expected to survive, and investigators are exploring gang motives in the attack, police said.

Just before 8 p.m., the victim, believed to be in his late teens, was walking by Clyde L. Fischer Middle School on Hopkins Avenue when he was shot at least once by someone in a passing light-colored SUV, police said.

He was taken to the hospital and was treated for injuries that were not deemed life threatening.

Neither the vehicle nor any suspects have been found.
