A woman who had barricaded herself inside a home in Winnetka overnight was taken into custody by SWAT officers early Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Police initially responded to the 7000 block of Fullbright Avenue (map) after receiving a call around 10:15 p.m. on Monday of a possible suicide in progress, LAPD Officer Kevin Archer said.
When officers arrived, they discovered a woman was inside the home by herself, according to Archer.
The woman refused to come out, Archer said.
There were conflicting reports from the LAPD about whether the woman had a number of weapons registered.
The incident prompted the SWAT team to respond.
About 15-20 nearby residences were evacuated to nearby Fullbright Elementary School while the woman was barricaded in the home, according to police.
The woman surrendered without incident shortly before 5:30 a.m., according to the LAPD’s Topanga Division.
Authorities were conducting a search of the residence, an LAPD captain at the scene said.
No other details were available.
