    According to San Jose police, a man fired his gun at a car near the intersection of East Capitol Expressway and McLaughlin Avenue around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

    Officers tracked him to an East San Jose residence. Police initially thought the man had two hostages with him, but it turned out that he didn’t.

    Neighbors were forced to evacuate but everyone has since been allowed to return home.
