The Long Beach Police SWAT team remained in a stalemate Sunday afternoon with a suspected gunman who barricaded himself inside a home after police opened fire on him.
The incident began when officers responded to a report of a man pointing a gun at another person around 10:15 a.m. on the 5200 block of East 25th Street, near the 405 Freeway, police said.
The man refused to be detained by officers, police said. Shortly afterwards, a shooting occurred by the police.
It is not clear how many officers fired or whether the suspect was beaten and injured in the shooting, police said.
Local residents were evacuated and two SWAT vehicles were parked in the street in front of the house.
The suspect is believed to be alone inside, police said.
According to police, negotiators contacted the man to de-escalate the situation.
