So far the identity of the suspect is unknown, although authorities mentioned that he would have an extensive criminal record, so it is expected that more details will be given in the following hours.

Almost two days later, the operation that was carried out after a suspect entrenched himself in a home in the town of Valinda, in Los Angeles, ended after his death was made known, apparently by suicide.

According to Los Angeles County Board Supervisor Hilda Solis, “I have been informed that the suspect involved in the Valinda roadblock situation has committed suicide. My office is bringing families together and coordinating so they can return to their homes safely .”

Aerial images from above of the neighborhood showed that Los Angeles Police Department tactical vehicles had been working to demolish part of the home. There was extensive damage to the front of the single-story home, including at least three holes in the roof.

Thus, the multi-day standoff between a shooting suspect and sheriff's deputies came to an end Sunday night, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The barricade situation began on Friday, March 10 around 2 PM, when LASD officers responded to reports of an assault with a deadly weapon in the 16900 block of Wing Lane in Valinda.

When officers arrived, the suspect fired multiple shots at the officers, fortunately, no officers or bystanders were reported injured from the first exchange of fire.

This Sunday, Sheriff Robert Luna gave more details about the suspect, without revealing his identity, although he commented: “from what we know, he has an extensive criminal record , someone who is no stranger to contact with law enforcement.”

Many families in the area had to be evacuated while officers dealt with the entrenched suspect, who ultimately met a fatal end.
