An armed man was barricaded inside a West Hollywood home early Sunday morning as police negotiators tried to coax him out.

The man initially ran into a resident’s apartment on the 8200 block of De Longpore Avenue shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday, barricading himself inside and locking the resident out, said a watch sergeant at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood station. The apartment building was evacuated.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) Special Weapons Teams were on scene to assist the West Hollywood sheriff’s station and assumed command of the tactical response, said the LASD Sheriff’s Information Bureau. A crisis negotiation team was also on scene “to bring the situation to a peaceful resolution.”

The situation was still ongoing as of 7 a.m. Sunday.
