EL CAJON (CNS) - A roughly six-hour police standoff at an apartment home in El Cajon ended peacefully today with 19 people being detained and a 9mm handgun being seized.
Officers responded to 1191 N. Cuyamaca St. around midnight, after receiving several 911 calls about gunfire in the area and an injured man leaving the address following a large fight, according to El Cajon police.
Officers confirmed people were inside the apartment but they refused to come outside, El Cajon police Lt. Tim Henton said, adding that the officers then obtained a search warrant.
Believing whoever fired the gun was inside, along with possible shooting victims, SWAT and crisis negotiators were also called in, he said.
Meantime, the stabbing victim was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital, Henton said, adding that the man was treated and released.
Around 6 a.m., a flash bang was deployed and 19 people surrendered to officers. Henton said all 19 were detained but none were immediately arrested.
SWAT officers then checked the apartment and found a 9mm handgun inside, according to the lieutenant, who said shell casings also were located outside the home.
