LOS ANGELES (CNS) - An hours-long standoff in the Mid-Wilshire area came to an end today with the arrest of a person who had barricaded himself inside a residence, and no injuries were reported.

Police responded to the area for unknown reasons around 9:30 a.m., and one person was taken into custody and another barricaded himself in the home in the 1000 block of Cloverdale Avenue, LAPD Officer Drake Madison said.

A SWAT team was summoned to the scene and set up a perimeter that stretched from Olympic Boulevard to Edgewood Place, between La Brea and Cochran avenues, according to the LAPD.

The suspect was taken into custody around mid-afternoon, according to Sgt. Patrick Welsh of the Los Angeles Police Department's Wilshire Division.

No details were immediately available on how the standoff ended, or about what prompted the police response to the area in the first place. Police initially said the barricaded person was a murder suspect, but later said he was not suspected in a homicide.
