Sheriff's deputies later told ABC7 News that investigators later found a machete, zip-ties and duct tape inside one of the cars involved, leaving some to question what the two suspects were planning to do with it all.
"They had a loaded shotgun, additional shotgun shells, but what they also had in the car was a machete, duct tape and zip-ties-- I can only speculate," said Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith.
Another suspect, identfied by friends as Mark Morasky, was shot and killed after attempting to run from the truck they carjacked.
