NBC Bay Area reported that two people died at the scene and that a third person, which it said was the shooter, was taken to the hospital, but later died.
Police said there was no remaining threat on campus, NBC Bay Area said.
It was not known whether any of the dead were students.
Erin Sterner, a San Jose State student and a production assistant for NBC Bay Area, told the station that she heard the shots, but did not initially realize what they were.
"I was getting ready to go back to work — I was on my dinner break — and I heard several pops. I didn't really know what it was and got in my car," she said.
As she was driving to work, Sterner said she saw six police cars drive past and on arriving at work she said "all my friends" were talking about it on Facebook.

Some students questions why the university did not send out text and email alerts until about 90 minutes after the shooting, NBC Bay Area reported.
The shooting happened at about 8:30 p.m. local time and some told the station they did not receive the alert until after 10 p.m.
The university told NBC Bay Area that it tried to put out any such alert as soon as possible but had to ascertain what had happened first.
