Police in Stand-off With Suspect in San Jose Near Schallenberger Elementary

Police late Friday are in a standoff with a hit-and-run suspect who barricaded himself inside a home in San Jose.

The suspect earlier in the afternoon is believed to have fled from a stolen truck after hitting a man on the 1500 block of Scott Street, just of West San Carlos Street in the Buena Vista neighborhood.

Police initially responded to the area for a report of a shooting, but instead found a man suffering from a non-life threatening injury.

Officers said they were able to locate the driver a short time after talking to the victim, but he fled possibly into one of the backyards in the area of Marsha Way. Neighbors in the area also reported a suspicious person attempting to break into a home.

Nearby Schallenberger Elementary School on Koch Lane was placed on lockdown and later evacuated while police and a SWAT team responded.

No other injuries were reported and no other information was immediately available.
