SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A standoff at a Paradise Hills apartment complex that was prompted by a domestic violence incident Tuesday ended when a man involved in the situation surrendered to police.

Police responded to a domestic violence call at around 5 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 6800 block of Potomac Street. The incident involved 39-year-old Isaac Cross and a woman believed to be his girlfriend or wife.

The woman had visible injuries, according to police, but she was not taken to the hospital.

When officers arrived, Cross barricaded himself inside an apartment unit and refused to come out.

Police said Cross was alone when he locked himself in the unit. At the time, it was believed that Cross was armed with a handgun.

Police told 10News that Cross has a criminal history that involves robbery and assault.

Police at the scene made numerous attempts to contact Cross via a bullhorn and by phone, but he refused to answer them.

After SWAT was summoned to the scene, several nearby apartment units were evacuated.

At 9:15 a.m., Cross exited the unit with his hands up and was taken into custody without incident. He faces charges of making criminal threats, brandishing a firearm and felony domestic violence.

10News learned that police were still searching for a handgun involved in the incident.
