San Jose: Traffic Stop Turns to Stand-Off

More than 20 CHP officers surrounded a San Jose auto shop during a two-hour standoff.

A man jumped out of his car during a traffic stop in San Jose and fled with what looked like a gun, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP said they then chased him. A neighbor called police and said the suspect was in her yard armed with a handgun.

When police arrived at the home, the man fled into a nearby auto shop.

Authorities surrounded the building with more than 20 officers.

After about a two hour stand off, police took the suspect into custody without incident.

Police have not released his identity.
