SAN DIEGO (AP) - A daylong police standoff in San Diego has ended with five arrests.

U-T San Diego (https://bit.ly/1u33u7d ) says police went to a City Heights apartment at around 3 a.m. Tuesday to serve search and arrest warrants for drugs and weapons.

Police surrounded the unit and over several hours arrested two men, a woman and a 17-year-old boy - although the fourth person only surrendered after a SWAT team fired tear gas and flash-bang grenades.

A fifth person refused to leave the apartment despite crisis negotiation efforts and more rounds of tear gas.

Police finally arrested the man shortly after 2:30 p.m. when a police dog bit him and officers stormed the apartment.

About 30 people were evacuated from the apartment complex and another building during the standoff.
