LANCASTER – A woman who barricaded herself in a residence in Lancaster early Thursday morning was taken into custody, authorities said.
Special Enforcement Bureau personnel were sent at 1:05 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 1, to the 4500 Block of East Avenue E to assist deputies from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station with a woman who barricaded herself inside the residence, said Deputy Brenda Serna of the Los Angels County Sheriff’s Department.
Some nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution, and crisis negotiators worked to contact the woman. About 7 a.m., the sheriff’s department reported that the suspect was taken into custody “without further incident.”
“The area was deemed safe and all neighborhood evacuees were allowed to return to their homes,” a sheriff’s statement said. The woman’s name was not released, and no further information on the incident was immediately available.
