A six-hour SWAT standoff ends in Escondido and the 17-year-old suspect is nowhere to be found.
Escondido police officers spotted the teenager in the 900-block of East Mission Ave around 6:30 p.m. He was a known suspect in a recent assault with a deadly weapon.
When officers went to try to arrest him, the suspect ran into the Hidden Villa Apartment Complex.
That's what started a six-hour standoff. No residents were allowed into or out of the complex.
SWAT officers surrounded the apartment complex because the suspect had been known to be armed with a gun.
Around midnight, SWAT tried to enter one of the apartments that the teen had barricaded himself inside, they realized that the teen had left.
