Homicide suspect arrested after standoff on roof in Inglewood

- One person was killed and another injured on Friday in Inglewood, and a suspect who scampered onto a neighborhood rooftop was taken into custody after a short standoff with police.

Homicide detectives say a man and wife were attacked by their daughter's ex-husband.



Police and firefighters initially responded about 12:50 p.m. to the 3700 block of 106th Street on a report of an assault and pronounced one person dead at the scene and took another to a hospital, a fire department dispatcher said.

When police arrived, they discovered that a man and woman were physically attacked.

Nearby Morningside High School was placed on lockdown as a precaution while a search for a suspect was conducted.

After the attack the shirtless suspect barricaded himself and on the roof of a home. He eventually came down from the roof and was arrested.

Investigators have not released any names or a motive for the attack.
