Law enforcement from several agencies apprehended an allegedly armed man in Tustin, California, after a nearly five-hour SWAT manhunt on Thursday afternoon (April 10, 2014).

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department called in its Duke I and II helicopters to assist in the search, as well as its tactical SWAT team. The Irvine Police Department also used its armored vehicle in the search, which was initiated by the Tustin Police Department after an alleged confrontation at the Chevron gas station on Red Hill Avenue just south of the 5 Freeway on Thursday morning.

At one point, the Sheriff Department’s helicopters landed on Red Hill Avenue to load up SWAT marksmen to help in the search.
