Officers began searching the area for the suspect around 8 p.m. Wednesday, police told KTLA. Officers attempted to talk to the man, who climbed on top of a building and refused to come down.

At about 2 a.m., the unarmed suspect was shot with bean bags and taken into custody. He sustained minor injuries.
