FAIRFIELD (CBS SF) — An hours-long standoff situation between Fairfield police and a barricaded suspect believed to be armed ended Thursday night with two people being detained, after police used tear gas to get them to come out of the house, police said.

At about 8:30 p.m., police detained the male and female suspects and cleared and secured the home.

Residents in the neighborhood who had been asked to voluntarily evacuate their home were allowed to return to the area, according to police.

Officers initially responded to the home, located in the 1400 block Michigan Street, at 3:09 p.m. for a report of a disturbance.

As they arrived, they heard several gunshots near the home.

Officers then set up a perimeter around the home and contacted the people inside the home via telephone.

The Fairfield Police Department’s Crisis Negotiation Team and SWAT team also responded.

After deploying tear gas, the two people exited the home and were immediately detained by officers.
