Police say the man threatened his chess opponent with a gun about 2 a.m. Thursday. The neighbor ran out and called police.
The armed man remained inside, ignoring calls from a SWAT team to surrender, snubbing a visit from a robot with a camera and resisting officers lobbing flash bangs and tear gas canisters.
The man finally surrendered after 10 a.m., waving a white flag out his window. He was arrested for investigation of assault.
Some other residents in the building were evacuated and nearby streets were blocked during the standoff.
