JarheadPatriot: Man I didn't know that you can get L.A. TV broadcasts in OH. There is nothing on any of the local L.A. stations, except a news crawler on Ch5-KTLA, that the 710(Long Beach Fwy) is shut down in both directions(N & S) due to a hostage stand-off.

Standoff Suspect Arrested; Traffic Woes Continue

(CBS) SOUTH GATE, Calif. A four-and-a-half hour standoff between police and a kidnapping suspect on the Long Beach (710) Freeway ended peacefully Wednesday afternoon, but not before snarling traffic throughout the region for most of the day.

The freeway was shut down in both directions near Imperial Highway at about 10:30 p.m., after 32-year-old Eduardo Medina’s red minivan stalled. Medina got out of the minivan just before 3 p.m. and surrendered to SWAT officers, who had surrounded the vehicle and blocked it with several armored trucks.

Medina, a gang member, was wanted in connection with a December kidnapping in Van Nuys, Los Angeles police Lt. Paul Vernon said. Medina and an 18-year-old accomplice tried to kidnap a restaurant owner’s daughter for ransom, but accidentally kidnapped the daughter’s 17-year-old friend, Vernon said.

The 18-year-old suspect was arrested in December, but Medina remained at large. Police received a tip that Medina was in Long Beach and police tried to arrest him Wednesday morning in a traffic stop.

At one point during the standoff, authorities used a robot to deliver a telephone to the suspect.

"We have some good news. It ended with the suspect giving himself up peacefully. We have a felony suspect in custody," Vernon said immediately after the suspect surrendered. "We waited him out long enough."

Vernon did not specify what convinced Medina to give up and it’s not immediately clear if Medina had a weapon.

Vernon said it was necessary to wait out the suspect, even if hundreds of motorists had to put up with the long traffic delay.

"There are no options. We can't take risks with people's lives. What if he did have a gun? It sounds easy to say storm the truck," Vernon said, "but not if you're the one storming the truck."

The California Highway Patrol reported at 3:45 p.m. that the freeway would be reopened shortly.

A man [ID'd by KFI radio as a previously deported Mexican invader with a long criminal record] wanted for kidnapping surrendered peacefully today after a four- hour standoff with police that closed one of L.A's busiest freeways.
