Standoff in Vista Neighborhood Ends

San Diego Sheriff's Deputies (SDSO) have ended a standoff in a Vista neighborhood and there is no threat to the public. 

The incident began at about 4:20 a.m. when neighbors called police on an individual with a gun at an apartment complex near the intersection of Melrose and Shadowridge drives, just south of Shadowridge Golf Course and west of Rancho Buena Vista High School, according to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department (SDSO).

The man hopped in his car and took off, leading deputies on a short pursuit southbound before driving into a neighborhood near Stratford Place off Melrose Drive, SDSO said.

Deputies had the car surrounded at about 6 a.m. and a crisis negotiator had been called to the scene to talk to the man. 

Just before 7 a.m., deputies made contact with the vehicle and ended the standoff. There was no further threat to the public.
