A police standoff that began 2:30 Sunday afternoon continues at the Wyndham Garden Inn in San Jose. Some guests at the hotel off Silicon Valley Boulevard were evacuated from their rooms while police negotiated with a man wanted on an undisclosed warrant.

Captain Jason Dwyer said, "We have been in contact with the individual. We've been talking to him virtually all night, and negotiations have not been necessarily bad, we haven't made a lot of progress, he's not made any threats, so we're continuing to negotiate." Police are not releasing if the suspect is alone in the room. They also have not commented on the man's criminal history. However Captain Dwyer added, "We have information that would lead us to believe that forcing a confrontation would probably not end well."

Guests staying on the hotel's second floor were given new rooms. Others spent the night on the lobby couches. Andrew Lazo was one of them. "I feel pretty safe, but I don't know what's going on up there, I just hope it's not too crazy," Lazo said. The Wyndham will reimburse everyone who was displaced.

No word on when the standoff will end. Police hope their patience will lead to a peaceful resolution.
