Emergency services and security forces remained at the scene outside a Trader Joe's grocery store in Silver Lake, Los Angeles on Sunday morning, following the arrest of a suspect after shooting an elderly woman and barricading himself inside the store.

Footage shows emergency services vehicles at the scene along with news reporters outside the Trader Joe's store.

According to LAPD Sergeant Barry Montgomery, the suspect is believed to have been in a family dispute earlier in the day, in which he shot his grandmother and another younger woman before being pursued by police.

The suspect, who allegedly took the younger woman with him while being pursued by police, then crashed his grandmother's car outside the Trader Joe's before shooting at the officers and barricading himself inside the store.

Following a three-hour standoff, the suspect eventually surrendered to police outside the Trader Joe's store.
