A SWAT team surrounded a home near Mount Miguel High School Wednesday afternoon to try to flush out a suspect believed to be holed up inside, authorities reported.

San Diego police went to the house in the 1600 block of Tarleton Street in Spring Valley about 3 p.m., Officer Mark Herring said.

After trying in vain for about 45 minutes to contact the wanted person, the personnel called in the special weapons and tactics squad.

The stalemate was ongoing as of shortly before 6:30 p.m., Herring said.

The wanted person’s name was not immediately available, and the reason he or she was being sought was unclear.
