Man barricaded at Culver City motel taken away for questioning

Guests at a motel in Culver City, Los Angeles County, were evacuated after an armed and suicidal man shot at police offers on Monday.

Culver City police arrived at the Ramada Inn at around 5:30 am upon a radio call to conduct a welfare check. When the officers tried to speak with the person, he fired multiple shots through the door at them. Nobody was hit by bullets and the officers did not fire back.

According to local media, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department crisis counselors and its Special Enforcement Bureau were then called to assist.

This footage filmed at around 12 pm shows the man, handcuffed, being escorted into a car.

Shortly after 1 pm, police announced that the armed suspect had been taken into custody. No additional details or the suspect's identity were disclosed.
