Suspect Peacefully Surrenders After Nearly 20 Hour Standoff

A suspect who barricaded himself in an Ingleside apartment after an argument with his family peacefully surrendered this afternoon after a nearly 20-hour standoff with police, a San Francisco police spokesman said.

Officers responded at 8:16 p.m. Tuesday to the 200 block of Schwerin Street in response to a family dispute after the suspect made threats against the victim during a verbal altercation, police said.

The suspect went into his apartment and refused to come out and speak with responding officers, police said.

Police negotiators arrived, but he continued to ignore them.

The victim was not injured during the incident, and there are no other individuals inside the suspect’s apartment, according to police.

The 200 block of Schwerin Street was closed as negotiators tried to talk with the suspect. Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said the suspect had peacefully surrendered as of about 5:30 p.m.
