San Jose: Police in lengthy standoff with man seen brandishing gun
The conflict stemmed from a neighbor's report that a resident pointed a gun at her Tuesday morning, police said.
SAN JOSE — Police were in a lengthy standoff with a man who was refusing to exit his home after someone reported that he pointed a gun at a neighbor Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Officers were called just after 7 a.m. to the 1500 block of June Avenue, off King Road south of Story Road, following the gun sighting, according to San Jose police. The man suspected of brandishing the gun reportedly refused to come out of his home.
Sometime after noon, the San Jose Police Department’s MERGE unit — the equivalent of a SWAT team — was summoned to the site. Around 1 p.m., police confirmed that an officer lobbed a flash-bang grenade into the home in an apparent attempt to force the man to exit and surrender.
No injuries have been reported.
