Standoff Suspect Armed With Pellet Gun: Deputies

San Diego County Sheriff's Department

Encinitas residents experienced some tense moments Sunday morning as a man armed with a pellet gun started a standoff with San Diego County Sheriff's deputies. 

The incident began when deputies responded to the 100 block of Requeza Avenue around 8:20 a.m. for reports of gunshots. 

A SWAT team soon joined deputies to surround the house after the suspect refused to come out. 

For about an hour and a half, the suspect ignored officials' calls for compliance. 

Finally, the standoff ended peacefully as he was taken into custody. 

The man was charged with firing a replica gun.
