The LAPD was looking for a possible armed suspect who was said to have shown a gun on his West Hills balcony.
Around 5 p.m., cops got calls about a man with a gun in the area of Chaminade College Preparatory High School. Even though school was out, baseball practice was going on at the time. It was called off, and the players had to leave.
Harrison Lucas-Tinter, a witness, said, “We were in the middle of practice, and all we could hear were these sirens going off.” “The police come running in, and they just walk around. We didn’t know what was going on at all.”
The cops say that the man has a mental disorder and is very depressed. Before he took off on a motorbike, police officers were in the area trying to talk to him.
He pointed the gun at the cops at some point.
The tweet below verifies the news:
“This suspect was armed and dangerous, and we had seen him with a gun, so we wanted to make sure he couldn’t put other people in danger,” said Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton. “That’s why we kept chasing him.”
Even though no shots have been fired, police think he has two different guns.
Before going back home, the individual drove around the San Fernando Valley for about an hour. Then he drove into his driveway just as the police were about to pounce on him.
A short fight broke out, but the police were able to take him into custody.

“It was madness. “It was crazy that they went right through the barricade,” said neighbor Melissa Fares. “It scared me. There were cops there, and I think they did a great job because nobody got hurt.”
