Man barricades himself in Hollywood Hills West home

Police are negotiating with a man who barricaded himself in a Hollywood Hills West home after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at a person Friday morning, authorities said.

Around 11:35 a.m., a 911 caller reported that a man had pointed a shotgun at them, said Officer Drake Madison, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department. Officers responded to a vacant home in the 1700 block of Sunset Plaza Drive where the man, identified only as a 41-year-old, had barricaded himself with a dog.

The man is believed to have been hunkered down at home, Madison said.

SWAT officers were called and negotiated with the man to surrender, he said.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
