A Palm Springs man is facing several charges and jail time after being barricaded in a Palm Springs residence for several hours Friday.

Bruce Lombardi, 38, could be charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and resisting and delaying police officers.

Palm Springs police were called to a home in the 300 block of West Santa Elena Road around 7:30 a.m.

According to the Palm Springs Police Department, they responded to a domestic violence call that involved a man and a woman.

The Desert Regional S.W.A.T team arrived at 11:45 a.m. to assist, and police closed West Santa Elena at Via Norte for hours.

Lombardi surrendered after tear gas was deployed, and was taken into custody without incident.

He will be booked into the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.
