Riverside County Sheriffs Deputies surrounded a La Quinta cove home early Thursday morning where an hours-long standoff continued.
A spokesman told KESQ News Channel 3 the activity stemmed from a domestic disturbance reported at 12:48 a.m.
Dispatchers received a call for a disturbance involving a man and a woman in a home on Avenida Juarez just south of Calle Chihuahua. That's on the west side of the cove.
Deputies said they made contact with the woman, but the man refused to come outside the home.
A SWAT team was called to assist deputies on scene. Neighbors in the area told News Channel 3 this is not the first time they've heard domestic disturbance from inside the home in question.
