SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- An hours-long standoff was brought to an end Thursday night after police officers fired what looked like pepper balls at a vehicle. 

Police and a SWAT team surrounded a neighborhood in the 4400 block of Mentone Street in Point Loma. 

Police were first called to the scene at 5:35 p.m., after reports of a suicidal man in a vehicle. Around 10:30 p.m. officers fired non-lethal pepper balls at the man in the vehicle, prompting him to exit the car.
