San Francisco police say standoff ends peacefully

SAN FRANSICO (AP) -- San Francisco police say a standoff at an apartment in the city's Richmond District has ended peacefully with a man believed to be armed with a gun surrendering to officers.

A police spokesman says the standoff started around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when officers went to the apartment after getting reports that a man had fired a weapon inside his apartment complex some time Monday night.

Officer Carlos Manfredi says when officers arrived at the man's apartment they saw a bullet hole in his front door.

After knocking on the door, the officers heard yelling from inside the apartment. The officers called for the department's tactical unit and hostage negotiators.

The man surrendered after the negotiators made contact with him.

Manfredi says the man, who has not been named, was being evaluated for possible mental health problems.
