    A stabbing suspect was taken into police custody late Tuesday following a nearly four-hour standoff in Santa Clara.

    Lt. Kurt Clarke said the suspect stabbed someone at the 3500 block of Agate Drive. The victim has non-life threatening injuries and has been transported to a hospital, according to Clarke.

    Police initially responded to the scene at 6:50 p.m. and spent hours trying to get the suspect to come out of an apartment. Dozens of residents were displaced from their apartments and homes during the standoff.

    A SWAT team was also called to the scene. Tear gas was used to help get the suspect out of the apartment.

    No other information was immediately available.
