A baby inside a San Ysidro apartment was not harmed when a man inside held off a police SWAT team for more than seven hours.
The standoff ended peacefully Sunday with the surrender and arrest of Nicholas Schaefer, 25, the discovery of the baby in the apartment and the recovery of a loaded gun, according to San Diego Police. Several nearby apartment units were evacuated.
Officers were called at about 4 a.m. to a report of a domestic violence incident at the Park Haven apartments, in the 4100 block of Camino de la Plaza, across the street from the Las Americas Premium Outlets mall, Officer James Kremer said.
Schaefer’s girlfriend told officers that he was threatening her with a gun, according to Sgt. Ray Battrick.
The SWAT team was called in to take over the incident when the Schaefer refused to come out of the apartment. No one was injured and the child was reunited with its mother, Battrick said.
