An approximately two-hour long standoff in Silver Lake ended peacefully early this evening after a man who had barricaded himself inside a house following a domestic disupte was taken into custody. Many nearby residents could not get home after police blocked off the streets near the 800 block of Kodak Drive, where officers and a SWAT team had surrounded a house. Police arrived on the scene to find a man holding a knife and claiming he had other weapons shortly after the incident was reported at about 4:45 p.m., said LAPD spokeswoman Karen Rayner.
The standoff ended about two hours later without incident, she said. The man is expected to be booked on felony domestic violence charges, which usually involve some type of injury, Rayner said. Rayner, however, had no details about the nature of the injuries.
