Man barricaded in Canoga Park home

September 6, 2012 |  9:05 am

Los Angeles police officers are negotiating with a possibly armed man who locked himself in his house after arguing with his wife Thursday.

The woman called police about 6 a.m. to report her husband was upset after an argument and had access to guns, according to Los Angeles Police Officer Bruce Borihanh. When police arrived at the house, in the 7300 block of Remmet Avenue, the couple came out of the house, but the husband went back inside after talking with police and refused to come out.

The man has remained in the house and police have set up a perimeter and closed the block to traffic "out of an abundance of caution," Borihanh said.

Police negotiators and SWAT officers are at the scene. The woman was unharmed, Borihanh said.
