Barricaded Suspect with Machete & Rifle in Palmdale, LASD SEB SWAT Lands in Copter -- Ends Peacefully From Bail Bondsman In Palmdale

On Sunday at noon, Palmdale Sheriff's Station Deputies responded to the 37500 block of 37th Street East, Palmdale, in regards to a suspect (Nemecio Magallanes, male, Hispanic, 41-years-of age) reporting that there were three people with guns attempting to kill him. After deputies arrived on scene, the suspect refused to exit the location and kept hanging up the phone on deputies when they tried to talk to him. A second person from inside the location (victim and uncle of the suspect) callled the sheriff's station, stating the suspect was holding him against his will inside the bedroom. He added that the suspect was hallucinating and threatened him with a machete. Deputies contained (surrounded) the location and attempted to talk the suspect into surrendering aand coming out with his hands up. One of the deputies could see the suspect through a window walking around inside with a rifle. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Special Enforcement Bureau (SEB) deputies (SWAT Team) were notified. While SWAT deputies were en-route, the suspect released the victim, who then stepped outside. The victim was uninjured. As Special Enforcement Bureau deputies arrived via Air Rescue 5 helicopter at a nearby field, the suspect walked out of the location while holding the machete. He cooperated with the deputies commands to drop the machets and was taken into custody. Suspect Magallanes was booked at Palmdale Sheriff's Station for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and False Imprisonment. His bail is set at $50,000. His next court date is on July 17, 2012 at Antelope Valley Municipal Court. A search warrant was issued for the location and deputies recovered a semi-automatic rifle, along with a large number of bullets.
