    Police detained three people after an hours-long standoff at a home in San Jose on Sunday after receiving reports there may be an armed occupant inside, according to the department.

    Two men and a woman exited the home and were taken into custody at about 7:30 p.m., eight hours after the initial call to police to do a welfare check at the home.

    Police Officer Gina Tepoorten said officers were called about 11:30 a.m. Sunday and asked to make a welfare check on occupants of a home in the 2100 block of Stone Avenue, near Curtner Avenue in San Jose's Monticello neighborhood. Police were told of a possible dispute there involving people with at least one firearm.

    It was unclear whether or not a gun was recovered.

    Officers had blocked off Stone Avenue between Curtner Avenue at Perrymont Avenue for hours, and a tactical unit was called to the scene, police said. The streets reopened at about 7:30 p.m.

    No further details were immediately available.
