A man who allegedly shot at police in Inglewood Thursday and then held SWAT officers at bay was taken into custody after a standoff that lasted about three hours.
The man allegedly fired at police around 2 p.m. in the area of Queen and Oak streets, near Manchester Boulevard, and then dropped a handgun before fleeing into an apartment complex, police told reporters at the scene.
A SWAT team surrounded the area and crisis negotiators began trying to coax the suspect into surrendering.
At one point, the suspect was seen on a roof within the containment area.
Police tweeted about 6:20 p.m. that the man was in custody.
His name was not immediately released.
No deputies were injured.
