Los Angeles police detained a man who was believed to be armed while barricaded inside a Venice residence Wednesday night.

About eight LAPD units responded to the scene, where officers worked to make contact with the suspect.

Police said the man was later detained.

It's not immediately known whether anyone was inside the home during the barricade.
