Police Stand-off

Central Station police officers with the SFPD responded at about 1:15 a.m. to the 400 block of Bay Street. Witnesses called in a possible domestic incident in the area, authorities said.

Police officials identified the suspect as a 32-year-old man who locked himself inside the building. They said they were not aware of the condition of any possible victims in the structure. Later, a crisis negotiation team responded to the scene to talk with the suspect.

Hours later at about 7:15 a.m., police said the man peacefully and quietly surrendered himself to authorities. The police department did not provide any additional information regarding the incident or what the suspect’s intentions or motives were, NBC Bay Area reported.
