A standoff between Stanislaus County authorities and a man barricaded inside a home ended peaceably late Monday night.

Angel Dominguez, 26, was arrested a little after 11 p.m. Dominguez is said to have walked out of the back part of the home and surrendered. He had been in a standoff with SWAT and Newman Police near S Street and Inyo Avenue for the past five hours.

Dominguez is said to have pointed a gun at a police officer who showed up to try and calm a dispute between Dominguez and a neighbor. No shots were ever fired during the course of the incident, sheriff’s note.

Stanislaus authorities note that Dominguez is a known felon, currently on probably for drug possession and domestic violence offenses.

Dominguez now faces charges of brandishing a firearm at a peace officer, a violation of probation, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
