SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A suspect was taken into custody following a SWAT standoff and officer-involved shooting in Paradise Hills that forced a nearby elementary school to go into lockdown.

According to the San Diego Police Department, a SWAT team was called to a home on the 1800 block of Altamont Court around 2 p.m.
