GRANADA HILLS (CBSLA) — An LAPD SWAT team was engaged in an 8-hour-long standoff with an assault suspect believed to be armed with a gun at a home in Granada Hills early Friday morning.

The suspect barricaded himself in a home in the 11800 block of Louise Avenue at around 4 a.m. after a victim alerted officers of an assault with a deadly weapon, according to LAPD officers.

When officers arrived at the location, they discovered that three people were inside the home.

Two people exited the home shortly after officers arrived, while the man authorities believed to be armed remained inside. A SWAT team was then called to the scene.

The barricade situation came to an end at approximately 12:20 p.m. Friday afternoon when the suspect exited the home and surrendered peacefully.

The man was taken into custody for questioning.

No injuries were reported during the standoff.
