man barricaded himself inside a home Monday before he was forced out and arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy, authorities said.

A SWAT team surrounded the suspect’s house in Palmdale, and “family members did come out” but “the suspect chose to barricade and refused to initially come out,” Sheriff Robert Luna told reporters, as he described the arrest of Deputy Ryan Clinkunbroomer’s alleged killer.

After an hours-long standoff on Barrinson Street, deputies “deployed chemical agents, and the suspect ultimately surrendered,” Luna added.
