An overnight stand off between Elk Grove Police and a barricaded gunman ended peacefully Friday morning.

Police say just before 3 a.m., a repo tow truck driver called to report a man firing a gun into the air when he tried to repossess the man’s car from in front of his Mapleview Way home.

The alleged gunman then hopped into his car and drove away, according to police.

Police tried to get the man to come out of his home after he returned. Two women were inside with the man voluntarily, officers say.

The man surrendered around 6 a.m.
