SAN DIEGO -- San Diego police fired non-lethal rounds Friday morning to end a stand-off with a man reportedly armed with a knife and rifle at a home in Bay Park, police said.
Police identified the suspect as 47-year-old Kenny Bui.
Details of the incident were sketchy, but a San Diego police watch commander confirmed that the standoff took place in the 2800 block of Arnott Street between Field and Huxley streets. Police told FOX 5 that they fired non-lethal rounds at the man in order to take him into custody.
The incident began sometime around 8 a.m. and ended shortly after 8:20 a.m. Witnesses said the man was injured but alive when he was brought out of the house.
Police said they got a call about elder abuse and when officers arrived at the house one of them heard gunfire from the garage.
According to police, Bui lives at the house with his parents and was armed with a rifle and knife as he jumped the fence into a neighbor's yard.
Bui repeatedly ignored commands to drop his weapons and surrender and twice officers shot at Bui with bean bag rounds, said Capt. Brian Ahearn.
“At one point, Mr. Bui exited from the shrubbery and pointed the rifle at an officer on a perimeter position. The officer, fearing for his safety and the safety of others, fired what we believe to be two rounds from his handgun," said Ahearn.
A K9 unit was sent in and bit the suspect's leg. Officers then spotted Bui lying on his rifle and were able to grab him, said Ahearn.
Police say Bui suffered an abrasion to his forehead and is expected to be fine.
Neighbors said the man has a history of bizarre behavior and may have mental issues.
