Photo Gallery: La Crescenta Verizon stand off

Two Los Anglels County sheriff's deputies gear up to approach a suspect in their vehicle in La Crescenta where a man barricaded himself in a Verizon store on Friday, November 29, 2013. The suspect, possibly a young white male, allegedly attempted to rob a Rite Aid of OxyContin. He fled, with a gun, and ducked into Verizon where he took two hostages which he later released. SWAT was on the scene as negotiators attempted to get the man to surrender. (Tim Berger/Staff Photographer)
