During a standoff that began at 5:45 p-m yesterday, the 58-year-old man called police saying his wife shot herself. He surrendered about 4:30 a-m.
The wounded woman was found on the front lawn of the home when officers arrived. A weapon was found nearby.
About 30 officers surrounded the home through the night-long standoff. The neighborhood was NOT evacuated.
San Jose Police Sergeant Joseph Deras said officers had previously been called to the home.
