North Hollywood standoff ends with suspect in custody

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES

A man, who claimed to be armed, surrendered without further incident.

That man showed up at his father's house around 10 p.m. Tuesday, and despite a restraining order, he refused to leave.

The father called police, and the SWAT team was called in when the man said he had a gun.

The residents of four surrounding homes were evacuated during the standoff.

Los Angeles police say there was never a gun, but the man may have been under the influence of drugs.
