Sacramento police negotiators peacefully resolved an incident in the northern part of the city where a man suspected of domestic abuse was inside a home with a 1-year-old child.
The girl was not injured, police said.
Officer Matthew McPhail said that just after midnight Monday morning officers responded to the 1100 block of Alamos Avenue for a call about domestic violence. Police had information that a man and a woman had been involved in a dispute and that a firearm was involved.
The man left with the couple’s daughter before the police arrived. The woman also left the home after speaking with officers.

Around 3:30 a.m., the woman returned to the home but did not enter. She suspected the man was inside and she called police, authorities said.
Officers arrived and surrounded the home. Officers could not contact the man inside, so they called in SWAT officers and a negotiation team, authorities said.
After about two hours, the man voluntarily exited the home in the Hagginwood neighborhood. The man was taken to the hospital and could be booked on suspicion of domestic violence, McPhail said.
