SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino police say they’ve arrested three men who barricaded themselves inside a 9th Street home for half the night.

Police Lt. Rich Lawhead tells KABC-TV that around midnight, police received calls about shots fired. He says another round of shots was reported a block away at the 9th Street house.

Lawhead says the men refused to come out of the house, but some women did.

SWAT officers fired several rounds of tear gas into the home and shortly after 6 a.m., the men came out the back door of the residence and surrendered without a fight.

Lawhead says he doesn’t know what sparked the standoff.

A woman who identified herself as a fiance of one of the men tells KNBC-TV the trio had been drinking.
