The man whose North Manhattan Beach duplex in August incited a long standoff with Manhattan Beach police’s SWAT team after neighbors reported hearing gunshots turned himself into police Tuesday.
Jeffrey Paul Henderson, now a resident of Long Beach, was booked on a felony warrant, which included charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance (Xanax) for sales, Possession of Methamphetamine for Sales and Possession of Ketamine (Ecstasy) for Sales, according to MBPD.
Early morning on Aug. 10, police received a call from a resident reporting two gunshots fired from inside Henderson’s apartment on the 3300 block of Bayview Drive. MBPD, with assistance from El Segundo, Redondo and Hermosa police, evacuated nearby residents and cordoned off nearby streets, and deployed its SWAT team for the first time since 2005.
When MBPD finally obtained a warrant to enter his residence, detectives found no one inside but discovered bullet casings, a trickle of blood and a large amount of narcotics. A subsequent investigation of the 32-year-old resident resulted in a criminal filing and a felony warrant, according to MBPD.
Henderson has posted $180,000 bond and is scheduled to appear on Dec. 9 at 8:30 a.m. at Southwest Superior Court in Torrance.
