LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two men arrested following an armed standoff in a Los Angeles suburb have been charged with attempted murder.
The Los Angeles Times reports 37-year-old Jason Devore of La Habra and 19-year-old George Contreras of Los Angeles were charged Thursday.
The felony criminal complaint includes a special allegation that Devore discharged a firearm in the commission of the crime.
The men were arrested Tuesday night, hours after Devore, allegedly armed with a rifle and wearing a bullet-proof vest, barricaded himself after officers tried to arrest him. Contreras was also inside the mobile home in the Norwalk area.
Authorities had been investigating Devore for a series of robberies in the Pomona area.
About 30 homes were evacuated during the standoff and several shots were fired at law enforcement personnel.
