One arrested in Bay Park after four hour SWAT standoff

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A man in Bay Park who was possibly armed surrendered to police after a four hour standoff with police Saturday.

Police were called just after midnight about a man with a gun in the 2300 block of Galveston Street. Police attempted to contact the suspect, who refused to come outside his residence, said San Diego police officer Tony Martinez.

“The male made verbal threats to commit suicide and shoot the police," Martinez said. “A SWAT call was initiated. The man remained inside his residence for about four hours."

Anthony Hernandez later surrendered and was taken into custody. A subsequent investigation revealed that he had physically assaulted his girlfriend and was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, he said.
