PASADENA >> A Pasadena SWAT standoff ended Wednesday when a wanted suspect was taken into custody after more than two hours, officials said.
The incident came to an end about 1:20 p.m. when the man surrendered to police at his home in the 400 block of North Raymond Avenue, Pasadena police Lt. Kelly Evans said.
The stand-off began about 11 a.m. when officers spotted Daylon Camp, 21, of Pasadena, who was wanted on a burglary warrant, the lieutenant said.
As gang officers approached, he ran into his father’s home, police said.
“He didn’t respond to officers commands to come out,” he said.
A SWAT team responded to the scene and surrounded the home, Evans said. About two hours later, Camp surrendered without further resistance.
The barricade situation unfolded at the same time as a manhunt for a shooter or shooters involved in a mass shooting the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, leading to wide, incorrect speculation the incidents were linked.
“Broadcast news erroneously reported the Raymond Avenue suspect was connected with an active shooter incident in San Bernardino,” Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said. “The two incidents are not connected.”
