SAN JOSE (KRON) — A arrest has been made in a San Jose standoff that lasted ten hours.

Thursday night around 6:30 p.m., San Jose police got a call about a man who had barricaded himself with a gun inside a house near downtown, at 11th and Julian Streets.

For hours, officers were on-scene with special forces teams. Around 4 a.m., they announced arrested 51-year-old John Adams.

Adams is currently being treated for pre-existing injuries, not related to his arrest. The woman was not hurt during the stand-off
