SAN DIEGO, Calif. -

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The latest on an active shooter at a San Diego apartment complex (all times local):

4:45 p.m.

Authorities have released more details on the number of flights affected at the San Diego airport after a gunman fired off rounds inside a nearby apartment complex.

Ian Gregor with the Federal Aviation Administration says about 30 arriving and departing flights were canceled at the San Diego International Airport, and about 30 flights were diverted.

Authorities say the gunman surrendered to police after a more than five-hour standoff Wednesday, and no injuries were reported.

The FAA halted incoming flights for several hours as a precaution because planes swoop low near the apartment complex before landing.

3:45 p.m.

Police have identified the gunman who fired off sporadic rounds inside an apartment complex, disrupting air traffic at the nearby San Diego International Airport.

Officials say 33-year-old Titus Colbert surrendered to police after a more than five-hour standoff Wednesday, and no injuries were reported.

The Federal Aviation Administration halted incoming flights for several hours as a precaution because planes swoop low near the apartment complex before landing.

San Diego Police Lt. Scott Wahl says Colbert threw "multiple weapons" out the window of a rooftop apartment before being taken into custody.

Wahl says officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect in the morning after responding to a domestic violence call at the apartment, where the victim lives.

3 p.m.

Flights to the San Diego International Airport have resumed after police took into custody a gunman who fired shots at a nearby apartment complex, posing a threat to air traffic.

Police Lt. Scott Wahl says the domestic violence suspect walked out of the complex Wednesday afternoon, ending a more than five-hour standoff with officers.

Officers swarmed the building and exchanged gunfire with the man after responding to a domestic violence call.

The Federal Aviation Administration lifted its orders barring all flights from landing after the gunman moved into a part of the apartment where no longer posed a threat to air traffic.

He surrendered shortly after that.

Wahl says no one was reported hurt.

A neighbor of a gunman firing off shots inside a San Diego apartment complex says he heard a bang and then spotted a hole in the stucco wall that separates his apartment from the suspect's.
    
Tom Neu told reporters that he cowered in his bathtub, talking to friends and co-workers on his cellphone as SWAT team members swarmed the building. The officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect after responding to a domestic violence call Wednesday morning.
    
Lt. Scott Wahl says no one has been reported hurt. It's unknown if anyone is inside the apartment besides the suspect.
    
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says flights are being barred from landing at the nearby San Diego International Airport as a precaution.
    
Rescuers led Neu out of the complex.
