An Arcadia cop was shot in the face, and two others were wounded in a Wednesday incident.

Los Angeles Times reported that it was a domestic disturbance incident that ended when the gunman surrendered to police, authorities said Thursday. It sparked an hours-long standoff. It all began around 5.40 p.m. when two brothers got into a dispute in the 2500 block of Greenfield Avenue. According to Arcadia police Lieutenant Brett Bourgeous, it led to a call to law enforcement, who responded to the scene.

As cops were approaching the house, someone from inside opened fire. Authorities said that it struck one officer in the face. Two more people were wounded in the incident. One was apparently shot in the upper body and the other might have received shrapnel wounds from the shooting.

According to NBC Los Angeles, one of the injured people is a relative of the suspect, but the exact relationship was not known. The cop and two other victims -- one female and the other male -- were taken to a hospital.

During the initial outbreak of gunfire, another officer appeared to have suffered a minor ankle injury. The officers who came under fire while heading towards the house did not return fire, shared Bourgeous. A standoff ensued as the shooting suspect barricaded inside the house. Bourgeous said that investigators believed that he had access to multiple weapons.

Fox News reported that the Arcadia Police Department said that due to the incident's severity, they even requested assistance from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department (LASD).

Bourgeous said that a child was also initially inside the residence, but was removed from the house. No other children were inside during the standoff. As police and a sheriff's department special enforcement team worked to negotiate the suspect's surrender, neighbors were either evacuated or told to take shelter. The standoff went on till the unidentified suspect surrendered just before 11 p.m.

The identity of the wounded officer was not immediately released, but Bourgeous said that the cop had been with the department for about six months. The officer had about three years of overall law enforcement experience, and had previously served with the sheriff's department.
