Long Beach police responded to a home in the 100 block of East 35th Street about 2:30 a.m. for a call about a residential burglary.

The homeowners observed people inside their home through a security system while it was tented for fumigation, police spokeswoman Arantxa Chavarria said.

Responding officers secured the scene and made announcements to the people inside the home, before a teen got out of the house.

The teen was taken into custody and transported to a hospital for possible exposure to chemicals, though Chavarria said no chemicals were being released into the home at the time.

An additional suspect was seen through a window but refused to come out. Police have not been able to communicate with that person, Chavarria said.

Two people eventually came out of the home and were taken into custody. It is unknown if they were armed and they have not been identified.

SWAT responded to the scene and Long Beach Fire Department was assessing the situation.

An RV was parked outside the home, aerial video showed.
