An armed suspect who allegedly pointed a rifle at a woman and barricaded himself inside a South Los Angeles home early Monday has turned himself in, authorities said.

Police say the man pointed a rifle at a woman around 12:55 a.m. and dashed back inside a home near Budlong Avenue and 60th Place, prompting evacuations and a SWAT team response.

Authorities say a handful of homes were evacuated as SWAT officials attempted to coax the suspect out of the residence.

They were able to get the man out around 6:15 a.m., using flash-bang grenades. Police were seen escorting the man out of the house in handcuffs. His name was not immediately released.

No injuries were reported. The investigation was ongoing, authorities said.
