SAN DIEGO — A man suspected of firing off guns in the garage of his Rancho Bernardo home was taken into police custody Saturday after refusing to come out for officers during a six-hour SWAT standoff, authorities said.

The man’s girlfriend called 911 around 8:30 a.m. to report her boyfriend firing several rounds at the house, a San Diego police watch commander told FOX 5. The woman was unharmed and went outside to wait for officers at the house, which is on Robinia Court and Matinal Circle, west of Interstate 15.

When police arrived, officers say they heard several gunshots from inside the house, prompting emergency SWAT to be called and began evacuating the cul-de-sac. Field Lt. Casey Gini, with the San Diego Police Department, says they saw debris coming out of the side of the house, but none of the shots were directed at officers.

As the SWAT team attempted to negotiate with the man for several hours, he refused to come outside, officers said. The man, who was threatening to kill himself, was believed to have a shotgun, rifle and several pistols, officers told FOX 5 at the scene.

During the standoff, San Diego Police Department’s ABLE helicopter flew overhead, telling residents in the surrounding area to stay in their homes. The houses directly bordering the standoff were evacuated, according to police.

At around 2:30 p.m., police said the man surrendered and was brought out of the garage by officers and taken into custody. Police are investigating whether they will file criminal charges against him.

The shelter-in-place for residents in the area has since been lifted as of 2:45 p.m., according to SDPD.

No injuries were reported.
