one suspect is dead and another behind bars this morning after a tense and bizarre stand off in North San Jose last night. It all began yesterday evening in South San Jose when two suspects were involved in a chase by police. The suspects started firing at police chasing them. According to reports, they jumped out of their vehicle and then hijacked a UPS truck and driver, holding the UPS driver hostage. They ended up in North San Jose at Trimble and First St. where they released the UPS driver. One of the suspects eventually surrendered, while the other burst out of the truck firing a weapon and was reportedly shot by police after 7p.m. SJPD is due to release a statement later today with details on the standoff.
