Irvine Church Barricade


At approximately 7:00 p.m. Wednesday night a security guard noticed two suspects armed with guns entering a church in the 17000 block of Gilette. Irvine PD responded, and when the suspects did not exit the building, SWAT was called out. After a two hour stand off, the suspects gave up and were taken into custody. It is unknown at this time why the suspects were in the building. Irvine PD will be handling the investigation.
