SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A man, possibly armed, was holed up inside a home in South Los Angeles for several hours over a possible domestic issue, a police officer said.
Officers were dispatched at 8:42 a.m. Friday in response to an “assault with a deadly weapon suspect” call to the area of 70th Street and Cimmaron Street, said Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department.
A SWAT team was called to the location and negotiated with the suspect to come out of the residence.
Just after 2 p.m., officers fired tear gas into the home and apprehended the suspect.
It was not clear if he was armed.
