Los Angeles Police Department officers were in a standoff with an armed robbery suspect in Newhall after taking two other suspects into custody on Friday night, until the fugitive surrendered to police surrounding the apartment building he had barricaded himself inside, authorities said.

The man could be seen in Sky5 footage leaving the building, with both his arms raised in the air, at about 9:09 p.m.

The pursuit started at about 7:53 p.m.  when Metro officers had heard a broadcast about an armed robbery at a Metro PCS store in the 8000 block of Foothill Boulevard, Officer Sal Ramirez of the LAPD said. The officers spotted the car and stared following it, he said, and two of the three armed suspects involved were taken into custody some time later.

The officers had chased the car until it reached an apartment complex in the 23000 block of Newhall Avenue, officials said. The white sedan with the robbers inside stopped at the complex, and two took off on foot while the other barricaded himself inside an apartment building.

Authorities later said they had surveillance on the stores that the suspects robbed. Another robbery had also occurred at about 7:45 p.m. in the 8400 block of Sunland Boulevard, at another Metro PCS store, Ramirez said.

Sky5 footage showed police in a standoff with the third suspect, once the other two who fled on foot were taken into custody. At least three patrol vehicles could be seen parked outside an apartment building with a pool on its side, as a group of police officers stood alongside the parked vehicles.

At about 8:24 p.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department tweeted that multiple agencies were assisting with the barricaded suspect and told people to "stay away" from the active scene.

At about 8:48 p.m., what appeared to be the silhouette of a man could be seen standing in one of the building's windows as lights flash over the structure.

Later, at about 9:09 p.m., a man was seen leaving the building with his arms raised. Police officers surrounded the man before he got down on the floor and was arrested. And then, at about 9:11 p.m., a person carrying what appears to be a small child is also seen leaving the building.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station tweeted that there were road closures on Newhall Avenue and Valle del Oro as a result of a robbery suspect pursuit.
