SLOPD: Man in custody after firing shots in SLO home

A man was taken into custody early Thursday morning after police say he fired shots inside his San Luis Obispo home and wouldn’t come out, prompting a SWAT response and road closures in the area.

San Luis Obispo Police Operations Captain Jeffrey Smith says officers were called to a home on the 800 block of Alyssum Court shortly after midnight after receiving a report of someone making a lot of noise.

Smith says when officers responded, they did not hear anything, but were called out again about 30 minutes later.

When they arrived the second time, he says officers heard what sounded like a gun being loaded and then shots fired inside the home.

A perimeter was set up and a SWAT team requested. Nearby Tank Farm Road was closed off between Poinsettia Street and Hollyhock Way and a command center established in the Marigold Center parking lot. Smith says people were also evacuated from nearby homes during the initial response.

Shortly after 6:00 a.m., Smith says the man, who police knew and had prior contact with, came out of the home but was not cooperating with officers. Less lethal rounds were used to help take him into custody, according to Smith.

The man reportedly sustained minor injuries, but no one else was injured or inside the home when the shots were fired, Smith said.

Police remained on scene at 8:00 a.m. to collect evidence and investigate further, but the roads were back open and the command center taken down.

The name of the man has not yet been released.
