LOS ANGELES — A Los Angeles police SWAT team surrounded an Atwater Village home following a report of a family dispute and determined that a man who had refused to come out would not be arrested, pending further investigation.

Police went to the 3000 block of Silver Lake Boulevard around 10:45 p.m. Monday in response to reports of a family dispute, said officials at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Northeast Division.

A man was holed up in the home, and surrounding residences were evacuated, police said. It wasn’t immediately clear if the man had a weapon.

The standoff ended shortly before 6 a.m., when investigators called off the SWAT response and decided that the man would not be arrested, pending further investigation, said LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado. No injuries were reported.

Police did not immediately detail how the standoff came to an end.
