An armed suspect has locked himself in a Pacific Heights building Thursday evening and the San Francisco Police Department is in negotiations to get him out, police officials said.

The male, whose age is unknown, locked himself in a building in the 2000 block of California Street at about 3:15 p.m., Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

Andraychak said the male is believed to have a weapon, but poses a danger to himself only.

Police have closed California Street between Octavia and Laguna streets, Andraychak said.

As of 5:15 p.m., negotiators were at the scene attempting to get the suspect out of the building.
