San Diego police summoned a special weapons team to Barrio Logan Friday night after finding two people shot following reports of a disturbance.
The suspect surrendered without incident just before 11 p.m., according to OnScene.TV. They also found a dead victim inside the apartment where he had been holed up. San Diego police homicide detectives will take over the investigation.
The incident began when officers spotted a male who had been shot in the forehead upon arriving at the scene, at Logan Avenue and Sampson Street. The victim was rushed to a local hospital.
During the search, they had seen the other person down, with blood around the head and not moving, in a second-story apartment.
An uninjured male was also inside the unit, and he initially refused to communicate with officers.
At that point, they called in a SWAT team. Video from the scene showed officers armed with rifles standing sentry outside a small apartment building and a police helicopter hovering overhead as the standoff continued.
Once officers started to speak Spanish to the man holed up in the apartment, he began to talk to them and approached a window several times, according to OnScene. Police snipers also reported that they could see a weapon near the man.
Officers on the street, meanwhile, shutdown nearby clubs and restaurants on Logan and evacuated the area.
