Los Angeles SWAT officers fired tear gas into a residence at a mobile home park in Pacific Palisades today and flushed out a suspect, ending a standoff of nearly three hours, authorities said.

The suspect had been sought for making criminal threats against a woman at the unit around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, said Los Angeles police Lt. Lonnie Tiano.

The suspect barricaded himself inside a residence at the mobile home park in the 17000 block of Pacific Coast Highway and was suspected of being armed, police said. The SWAT team was deployed around 1:30 a.m. after the suspect refused to leave the residence.

Tiano said tear gas was used to force the suspect out around 4:20 a.m., and no one was injured. The suspect will be booked for making criminal threats, he said.
