San Jose police find suspect with air gun under bed

SAN JOSE, Calif. - A standoff between San Jose police and a man wanted for alleged attempted murder ended Friday when officers stormed into an apartment complex and arrested the suspect, who was hiding under a bed with an air gun at his side.
Scott Hensley, 31, of San Jose, had barricaded himself inside an apartment complex in the 2300 block of Paulene Drive for about 6 1/2 hours, according to officer Enrique Garcia, a San Jose police spokesman. Hensley was taken into custody just before 7 a.m. by members of the police department's tactical Merge Unit and K-9 officers.
Hensley was wanted by Campbell police for his alleged involvement in a home invasion robbery on July 23. Hensley and two other men allegedly broke into a home on Jones Way, located west of San Tomas Expressway, and assaulted and robbed the residents. As the armed robbers left, a resident followed the three men, who in turn fired one shot at the resident, according to Campbell police.
The bullet did not hit anyone.
San Jose police received a tip about Hensley's location and made contact around midnight Thursday. When police finally entered the apartment - after evacuating residents from the complex near Bascom and Union avenues - they found Hensley hiding under a bed. Garcia said there was an air gun beside him, which could have been mistaken for a handgun.
"Clearly this guy knew he was wanted and we had the place surrounded and he was refusing to come out," Garcia said. "When we made entry, he still had a gun right next to him. It could have turned into a potentially deadly encounter."
The two other men allegedly involved in the home invasion robbery, Jonathan Rodriguez, 22 and Mark Zavala, 20, are in custody. Rodriguez, of San Jose, was arrested July 24. Zavala, of Campbell, surrendered to Campbell police early this morning after Hensley was arrested.
All three men were booked into Santa Clara County Jail.
