Suspect Surrenders After Hours-Long Chula Vista Standoff

Police in Chula Vista serving an arrest warrant on Montgomery Street ended up in a standoff with a suspect that lasted hours on Thursday.

Corola surrendered to police at about 2:30 p.m. He told police that he didn't have any weapons inside the house, officials said.

A nearby school, Otay Elementary School,was not placed in lockdown, but students are operating under a rainy day schedule and staying indoors, officials said.

All school traffic was directed to approach from Main Street and leave back toward Main Street.
