Man Barricaded in South L.A. Area Taken Into Custody

LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A man who was barricaded in a residence in the south Los Angeles area for several hours was taken into custody Friday.

Officers went to the 1200 block of East 56th Street about 11:20 p.m. Thursday on a report of a barricaded suspect, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

A SWAT team was sent to the scene, and the man was taken into custody after several hours, police said. It was unclear if he would be arrested. No injuries were reported.

According to Key News Network, the man is a military veteran whose 80- year-old father told police that his son was firing a handgun in their home.

The son, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, barricaded himself in a back house when police arrived, and officers rescued the father through a bathroom window, Key News Network reported.

A crisis negotiator spoke with the suspect, who surrendered shortly before 3 a.m., Key News Network reported.
