The Los Angeles Police Department took a suspect into custody after an all-night standoff at an apartment building off Argyle Avenue and Selma Avenue in Hollywood, according to CBS. The police responded to a disturbance call at around 10:30 PM Friday night and found the suspect had barricaded himself in the building. The police were unsure of what weapon he had, so they evacuated the building and blocked off the surrounding streets.

The suspect emerged from the building early Saturday morning after police threw tear gas inside, according to City News Service. The Hollywood division of LAPD confirmed he was taken into custody with no shots fired and no reported injuries.

The LAPD has yet to confirm the suspect's identity, his weapon, or the circumstances that led to the standoff itself.
