An angry landlord armed with a crossbow and a Molotov cocktail barricaded himself in a home in West Hills on Tuesday after getting in a fight with a tenant.

Police were sent to 22500 Criswell St. at 5:10 p.m., said Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

A team of sharpshooters was on scene as was a bomb squad, because of the Molotov cocktail, Lopez said.

When police arrived, the landlord was threatening a tenant with the crossbow. He saw police and went inside the home.

“Hopefully he will come out,” Lopez said.
