A possibly suicidal man in his late 60s was barricaded inside a home in Sylmar on Sunday night and a SWAT team was at the scene along with negotiators trying to get the man to surrender, police said.

The suspect was believed to be armed with a firearm but not holding hostages inside the home in the 14300 block of Raven Street, said Sgt. Francisca Wheeling of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mission Station.

The suspect barricaded himself after officers responded to the home about 5:15 p.m. upon receiving a call from a family friend who said the man might be suicidal, Wheeling said.
