Woman Arrested After Two-Hour Standoff in Eagle Rock

A woman was taken into custody Saturday after she allegedly threatened a man with a gun and then barricaded herself inside an Eagle Rock home, police said.

Officers responded to the 2500 block of Laverna Avenue at 1:25 p.m. after reports of a domestic argument between a man and a woman, said Officer Mike Lopez said of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The woman allegedly pulled a gun, prompting the man to flee the home with their 9-year-old child.

Police initially said the two were husband and wife, but later said they could not confirm that.

The two-hour standoff ended when the woman was arrested by SWAT team members without incident.
