The Long Beach Police Department SWAT team remained in a standoff Sunday afternoon with a suspected gunman who barricaded himself inside a home after police opened fire on him.
The incident began when officers were responding to a report of a man pointing a gun at another person on the 5200 block of East 25th Street near the 405 freeway at around 10:15 a.m., police said.
Approached by officers, the man refused to be taken into custody, police said. A short time later there was a police shooting.
It’s unclear how many officers fired or if the suspect was hit and injured in the shooting, police said.
Local residents were evacuated and two SWAT vehicles parked on the street in front of the house.
According to the police, the suspect is said to be alone in the house.
Negotiators have contacted the man in a bid to de-escalate the situation, police said.
