SJ Police Say Despondent Man Remains at Large

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was threatening to commit suicide and appeared to have barricaded himself inside a San Jose home remains at large.

San Jose Police Sgt. Ronnie Lopez says the unidentified 35-year-old appears to have slipped out of the home where he was threatening to kill himself while police were securing the area early Saturday morning. Neighbors were evacuated and the street was closed, as officers took up positions around the home.

But authorities say the man called police around 9 p.m. Saturday from a pay phone near a local store. He gave them permission to go inside, where officers apparently recovered several assault rifles.

The man's name is not being released until authorities determine whether he committed any crimes.
