SWAT Team Responds to Standoff in Highland Park
A SWAT team was responding to a barricade situation in a residential area of Highland Park on Monday afternoon.
A person was barricaded in a residence in the 5700 block of Aldama Street (map), according to Richard French, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
The situation started when a search warrant was served before 9:30 a.m., French said.
Several SWAT vehicles and patrol cars were present at the scene, which is in a residential neighborhood. Dozens of armed officers were in the area and at lease one street was closed off, aerial video showed.
Police officers were aiding deputies and a SWAT team from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, French said.
A sheriff’s helicopter officer said the barricaded person was a “female robbery suspect.”
