Shortly before 11:30, Thursday, San Jose PD and SJFD responded to reports of a building on fire in Welch Park with the suspect still on the building. Initial responding units arrived to find smoke coming from the roof, and a distraught man still on the building. It took officers approximately 1 hour to coax the distraught man off of the building. The distraught man demanded to speak with his children before turning himself in. SJPD did a fantastic job of bringing the dramatic standoff to a peaceful conclusion.
