An armed male subject who had been barricaded in a San Jose home since Sunday night has been taken into custody, a police sergeant said.

Officers responded to reports of a male subject who fired a gun into the ground and then retreated into a home in the 1700 block of Del Paso Ave around 8:05 p.m. Sunday, Sgt. Heather Randol said.

Arriving officers contained the subject into the residence and the police department's MERGE unit responded to the scene, she said.

The male subject surrendered to police and was taken into custody without further incident this morning, according to Randol.

No injuries were reported, Randol said.
