A man armed with what appeared to be a semi-automatic rifle surrendered after an hours-long standoff in North Hollywood that followed a high-speed pursuit on Southern California freeways, reports NBC.
The man directed his rifle at officers during a high-speed pursuit from east of downtown Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, pulled over, ran through a neighborhood and climbed onto the roof of a house. He barricaded himself inside the house until 3 p.m.
The suspect, identified as 41-year-old Nolan Perez, came outside of the North Hollywood house with two dogs and lay down on the ground before SWAT officers took him into custody in the backyard, according to Los Angeles police. He was then taken out of the patrol car and transferred to an ambulance.
