LAKE VIEW TERRACE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man was barricaded inside a home in Lake View Terrace with relatives Thursday night after firing off a weapon in the house, police said.

SWAT officers were in the 12100 block of Hoyt Street after a report of the man firing a weapon.

Police said the man's grandmother and possibly his mother might be inside the house with him.

It was unclear whether anyone was injured.
