5 arrested after Diamond Bar standoff

DIAMOND BAR — Deputies arrested five men who barricaded themselves inside a home for more than two hours Friday.
The standoff began about 6 p.m. at a house near Northview and Armitos places, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Mario Estrada said.
A 33-year-old man who lived at the home was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, an outstanding bench warrant for drunken driving and a domestic violence incident that occurred earlier in the day in another jurisdiction, the sergeant said.
Four other men, all in their 20s, were also jailed on suspicion of resisting arrest.
Estrada declined to release the names of the suspects Saturday, citing an “ongoing investigation.”
Deputies responded to the house after a neighbor reported hearing arguing and what sounded like gunshots coming from another home in the neighborhood, Estrada said.
Officials found the 33-year-old man in the backyard of his home, yelling and throwing items around, he said.
The man refused deputies orders to talk to them, Estrada said, and instead barricaded himself inside the house.
After about two hours, the four younger men emerged from the house and surrendered to police, he said. The fifth man surrendered without further incident about half an hour later. No gun was found inside the home.
