A gunman from Inglewood, California, was taken into custody, two officers had been injured


The officers were being treated at Centinela Hospital.
Other officers, from the SWAT units, were starting to evacuate residents, including children from a school near 108th and 5th Streets. Snipers with the Inglewood police took up a position outside the house. The tense standoff between the gunman and the officers has gone for more than five hours. Negotiators persuaded the man to come out of the house. He was finally taken into custody and the two women he held hostage were safe.
A neighbor described what has happened saying:” There were so many gunshots, oh my God, it was like you were in a war zone.”
Authorities have confirmed that the man has a criminal history.
