San Jose police are now on the scene of the intersection of Olinder Court and Felipe Avenue, where a “helpless adult man” is believed to be holding an explosive device.

“Negotiators on stage engaged the suspect in dialogue,” San Jose police said in a tweet Thursday afternoon.

Little information is available now, but police have shut down Story Story as the situation continues. They also asked residents to avoid the area, and evacuated the “immediate area.”

This is a broken story and will be updated.
