A standoff in San Marcos lasted more than 6 hours before ending peacefully Monday night.
San Diego County sheriff's deputies had been in position on Longstaff Court since 4 p.m. after responding to the report of a fight between neighbors.
One resident refused to come out.
Crisis negotiators talked to a man on his balcony for hours.
They did not believe he was armed, but were concerned for the children inside the home.
That standoff ended around 10 p.m. with no injuries.
