LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- After leading Los Angeles police on a high speed chase through West L.A. on Thursday afternoon, a driver was taken into custody without incident following a brief standoff with officers after the pursuit ended on a residential street in Inglewood.

The driver initially refused to exit the vehicle, which was stopped in front of a home near Inglewood Avenue and 99th Street as multiple LAPD patrol cars were positioned in a phalanx behind the sedan.

Authorities said chase began when officers responded to a report of a disturbance by a man with a gun.
