A man barricaded inside a Norwalk home surrendered Saturday to a sheriff’s SWAT team stationed outside.

Deputies were called at 1:56 p.m. to a home in the 12300 block of Allard Street on a report of an armed suspect inside, according to the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

Video posted by the LASD on social media about 6:30 p.m. showed the man walking toward officers with his hands in the air. “Suspect in custody. Allard Street reopened. Neighborhood safe.”

The SWAT team had surrounded the home and surrounding homes were evacuated, officials said. A Crisis Negotiation Team worked to talk the man into giving up, officials said.
