A standoff in Pasadena is over after the barricaded man kept a SWAT team at bay for hours.Police responded to 1576 North El Molino Avenue for a man with a gun call at about 5 p.m. Monday.

When officers arrived, they heard shots fired in the homes' detached garage and was told the suspect was inside with his 9-year-old son.

After hours of negotiation, the suspect released his son but did not surrender himself. At about 1 a.m., he came out to fire at officers, who then returned fire.

At about 3:45 a.m., the suspect finally came out saying, "I give up, I give up."

Police are still trying to figure out what led to the violent standoff.

Residents said the whole incident was surreal.

"I was in my house, and police were all in my backyard, and all of a sudden they just said, 'Stay in the house.' Next thing I know, I just heard numerous bullets, like over nine to 15 coming," said neighbor Michelle.

The suspect was taken to a local hospital shortly after his surrender for an apparent gunshot wound. Police are unsure if he was injured in the gunfight with police or if he shot himself.
