A woman was shot by a man who then barricaded himself inside an Oakland home Saturday and refused to come out, according to the Oakland Police Department.

At 6:23 p.m. Saturday, dispatchers received a call of an adult woman who had been shot in the 5700 block of Los Angeles Street, just east of San Pablo Avenue, said Officer J. Moore. A search for the gunman ensued and numerous streets were blocked off, with residents not allowed to enter or leave the neighborhood.

Eventually, the gunman was located inside a home, but he refused to come out. He surrendered after 9 p.m. and taken into custody. The woman who was shot was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition, Moore said.
