Robbery suspect barricaded inside motel in Westlake

A massive police presence flooded the parking lot of a Westlake motel early Monday morning, after a reported robbery suspect barricaded themselves inside. 

The situation reportedly began at around 4:30 a.m. at the motel located on N. Alvarado Street. 

A SWAT team was called to the scene to assist with negotiations, as well as agents with Los Angeles Police Department’s Gangs and Narcotics Division. 

As a result, authorities evacuated all other people inside of the motel and Lake Street Primary School, located nearby, was placed on lockdown. 

Drivers were advised to avoid the area due to a series of road closures as the standoff continued well past 10 a.m.
