CARSON (CBS) — An armed suspect accused of assaulting family members was barricaded Saturday inside a location in Carson, sheriff’s officials said.

The sheriff’s special weapons team was sent to the 40 block of Camelback South just before 1 p.m. regarding an armed barricaded suspect, according to Sgt. Pauline Panis of the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

Family members told deputies the suspect had assaulted them after a dispute, Panis said.

Officials said the suspect has “attempted to shoot multiple times at the sheriff’s special weapons team,” according to Panis.

As of 8 p.m., the suspect — described as a male Latino — was still barricaded inside.
