An armed suspect was in custody this morning after a more than eight-hour standoff with a sheriff’s SWAT team at a home in Bellflower, according to authorities.
The suspect had been barricaded inside the home on the 9200 block of Faywood Street since 9:12 p.m. Sunday, according to Deputy Wally Bracks of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
“SEB (Special Enforcement Bureau) deputies have assumed command of the tactical response and Crisis Negotiation Team personnel are in route to bring about a peaceful resolution,” Bracks said earlier.
The sheriff’s department tweeted at 5:22 a.m. that the operation had concluded with the suspect in custody and Faywood Street reopened.
No further information was available about what led to the barricade.
