The Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office arrested a suspect in a standoff that caused a lockdown early Monday in Montalvin Manor, north of San Pablo.

A shelter-in-place alert was issued for the census-designated area around the intersection of Rachel Road and Heather Drive just before 3 a.m.

Residents in the area were advised to be on lockdown at their homes. Authorities said residents should stay inside, close and lock all windows and doors until further official instructions were issued. Residents were also advised to stay away from their windows. Authorities did not initially provide details on the nature of the activity. 

Police later confirmed that an armed suspect was barricaded inside a home in the 1400 block of Rachel Road. The lockdown stretched into Monday afternoon, but around 4, the sheriff's office said a suspect was in custody.

"We will continue to cooperate with law enforcement to ensure that our staff and families are safe," a release issued by the school district read.
