San Jose police were in a standoff Friday morning with a suspect inside a house near Oak Grove High School in San Jose, according to media reports.
Gina Tepoorten, a San Jose police spokeswoman, said officers served a search warrant in the area of Eagles Lane and Tradewinds Avenue, but she would not confirm the standoff, which reportedly began around 5:30 p.m. Thursday when police surrounded a residence, NBC Bay Area reported.
Authorities discovered an improvised explosive device on the school campus Tuesday, forcing an evacuation, but it’s unclear if the bomb and the standoff are related.
“We are not releasing information that would jeopardize the integrity of the on-going investigation and will release additional information at a later time,” Tepoorten said.
The area remained closed as of 7 a.m., but East Side Union High School District officials said a shelter-in-place order has been lifted and school will be in session Friday.
