SAN DIEGO (CNS) – San Diego police officers surrounded an apartment in the La Jolla Village neighborhood today in response to a domestic violence incident, and the suspect surrendered peacefully, according to police officials.

Police and SWAT officers surrounded the ground-floor apartment at about 4:30 p.m. in the 8900 block of Lombard Place near Nobel Drive in response to a call that the man may have killed his girlfriend and was threatening to shoot any police that approached the building, a police official said.
