A murder suspect was barricaded in Palmdale Saturday, where sheriff’s crisis negotiators were trying to get the man to surrender peacefully.

Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 36800 block of James Place around 11:40 a.m., according to Deputy Veronica Fantom.

The LASD’s Special Enforcement Bureau was called to the scene to assist deputies from the LASD’s Palmdale station and have taken over command while crisis negotiators try to make contact with the man, Fantom said.

Further information about the alleged murder was not immediately available.
