Standoff ends in East LA after shots fired incident

A barricade situation in East Los Angeles Wednesday ended after the suspect surrendered following an hours-long standoff with sheriff's deputies.

According to the sheriff's department, deputies were sent to the residence in the 1200 block of S. Brannick Avenue on a burglary call and heard possible gunshots from inside the building and requested a SWAT team. The possibly armed suspect was believed to be alone inside the home, authorities said.

The two nearby homes were evacuated and the Olympic off-ramp nearby blocked during the incident but the area has since reopened.


It's unclear if any injuries have been reported.
