NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A standoff between the New Orleans Police SWAT team and a barricaded man has ended peacefully in New Orleans East.

The man came out of the house with his hands up.

Chad Cabbins, 44, barricaded himself inside his residence in the 6900 block of Bundy Road Sunday night and engaged in a nine-hour standoff with police.

The standoff began at 11:42 p.m. when a call came in about a domestic disturbance. When officers arrived, they approached the front door of the residence and knocked in an attempt to speak with those inside.

Officers then heard two gunshots from inside. The SWAT team was then called and Cabbins barricaded himself inside with a gun.

Other occupants – Cabbins’ girlfriend and her two children –  had been inside the residence. Cabbins allowed the three to leave but not before striking the girlfriend with the butt of his handgun during an altercation.

The victim was treated at the scene and released.

After a standoff where NOPD SWAT officers used tear gas, forced entry and, ultimately, negotiation, Cabbins surrendered to police at about 8:40 a.m. Monday.

Cabbins will be booked into Central Lockup on charges of second-degree battery, aggravated battery and aggravated assault in this incident.

The standoff started around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night during what police are calling a domestic incident.

The man’s girlfriend was able to escape the home, but suffered minor injuries and is being treated.

At one point, police lobbed tear gas into the home and a negotiator was in contact with the man.

Several streets were shut down during the standoff.
