- A standoff in Covina between police and a 22-year-old man believed to be armed and holding his 7-month-old daughter with him in the car ended after several hours with the baby in police custody and the suspect dead from an officer-involved shooting, according to reports from the scene.

Video from the scene showed police using a device that caused a cloud, firing shots and taking the baby from the white car. The man was pronounced dead, according to news reports from the scene.

Covina police negotiated with the suspect and summoned a mental evaluation team to assist a bid to accomplish a peaceful surrender, Marquez said.
