San Jose police responded to reports of a possible shooting Monday night, with a suspect barricading himself inside a home for nearly three hours once they arrived, and a woman's dead body being found in the home after he surrendered.

A police standoff in San Jose on the night of Memorial Day ended with the discovery of a woman’s dead body, according to NBC Bay Area. The victim’s name has not been released, nor has the name of the suspect, who kept police stuck in a standoff of nearly three hours, as KTVU reports.

Police were called to the scene just after 6 p.m. Monday, as there were reports of a possible shooting on the 300 block of North 20th Street. NBC Bay Area describes the location as “not far from San Jose High School.”

Upon police arriving, the unnamed male suspect barricaded himself in the house. Police have not indicated whether he was armed. Special operations personnel took over negotiations with the suspect, eventually getting him to surrender peacefully and leave the house at about 8:40 pm.

But once police entered the residence, they found a dead woman inside the house. They immediately declared her death a homicide, though have not provided further additional information. The suspect remains in custody.

Police say they still don’t know any motive for the woman killing, and it’s unclear what, if any relationship she had with the suspect. Police are still investigating all that, and per NBC Bay Area’s report on the ground, the house was still taped off and surrounded by police vehicles as of 6:30 am Tuesday morning.
