No hostages were taken and no one was harmed during standoff

Between 12:15 and 12:30 p.m., today, Dec. 12, a barricaded suspect walked out of his own accord and surrendered to authorities at the Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, according to NWS Public Affairs Officer Gregg Smith. The incident apparently began around 9 a.m., Dec. 12, according to Smith.

According to Smith, Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) went into the family housing unit in which the suspect was barricaded and have begun an investigation.

Smith confirmed that the suspect was a uniformed member of the military, but was neither a member of the Navy nor a member of the Marine Corps.

As the situation was still developing, Smith told the Sun that Navy base security had been working to get the suspect to surrender peacefully.

The suspect did not take any hostages and the suspect was apparently unarmed.

Seal Beach Police assisted. The Sun will update this story as it develops.
