A man who barricaded himself in his Pico Rivera home for 26 hours surrendered to deputies on Monday afternoon, sheriff’s officials reported.
Michael Anthony Jewell, 31, was taken into custody around 1:20 p.m. after peacefully surrendering to negotiators, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Jewell was booked on several felony charges including assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a police officer and resisting officer, officials said.
Deputies responded to the 8800 block of Dalewood Avenue around noon on Sunday after neighbors called to report a man chasing them with a rifle and threatening to shoot, Sgt. Luis Trejo told KTLA.
Officials said Jewell barricaded inside his home with a rifle, and had previously been holding his mother against her will. Around 8:30 a.m. Monday, the mother exited the home and was evaluated by emergency responders. Officials said she was being detained pending further investigation.
At times during the standoff, authorities said Jewell was uncooperative and fired shots at deputies, but no one was injured.
During a search of the house, investigators found a high-caliber weapon.
The investigation was ongoing.
