Suspect found dead after 17-hour standoff with police in Tarzana

An armed suspect who was in a standoff with police for nearly 17 hours was found dead Friday morning, officials said.

SkyFOX was over an apartment complex along Etiwanda Avenue in Tarzana Thursday evening when the standoff started. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, officers responded to the home after receiving a domestic violence call.

Officials did not say if there were victims in the alleged domestic incident or if innocent people were in danger from the ongoing standoff.

No other details were released.
