A special weapons team from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Enforcement Bureau and a team from the Sheriff's Carson station have surrounded the complex at 1 Kingswood Lane.

The complex has been evacuated.

The special weapons team removed twin toddler girls from the condo where the suspect was hiding, Capt. Mike Parker said in an interview. It is not known what the relationship is between the suspect and the girls, Parker said.

The barricaded man is suspected of being involved in a shooting Saturday on Avalon Boulevard in Carson in which a person was shot in the arm, Parker said.

Officials are attempting to get the man to surrender, Parker said. If he continues to refuse, they will enter the condo, he said.
