A man who allegedly fired about three dozen shots from a rifle into a group, injuring three people, was arrested Wednesday following an eight-hour barricade in the South Los Angeles area, police said.

Officers were sent to 82nd and San Pedro streets at about 1:40 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

A SWAT team was also sent to the scene and the standoff ensued, police said.

“After an 8hr standoff, our officers & our Crisis Negotiation Team peacefully resolved the incident,” the LAPD later tweeted. “Suspect in custody & an illegal rifle taken off the streets.”

The suspect’s name was not immediately released.
