SAN DIEGO — A SWAT standoff between San Diego police and a possibly suicidal man ended early Monday, nearly eight hours after it started, when the resident came out of his Birdland home and surrendered to officers, police said.

Officers were sent to check on the man in his home on Seagull Court near Seagull Lane about 4:40 p.m., San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

As the officers approached, they heard a gunshot and called for assistance from a SWAT team soon after, police said.

An unknown number of nearby houses were evacuated while police worked to persuade the man to come outside. Other news agencies reported neighbors were told to shelter in place.

The man was believed to be alone.

The standoff ended around 12:15 a.m. when the man came out of his home and was taken into custody. He was taken to a mental health facility to be evaluated, Buttle said.
