Police said a 31-year-old man died in a hospital the day after a barricade on suspicion of an explosion in an Anaheim apartment.

Anaheim police said in a news release that the incident occurred at about 6:15 pm on Sunday when fire officials were called in an apartment on W. Lincoln Avenue at 2600 blocks about a possible explosion.

They arrived to find a house damaged by an obvious explosion. It was said that there was a man inside who was armed and barricaded.

Police confirmed that the man, later identified as Larry Carter Jr., was armed with a knife in the bathroom of his apartment.

The SWAT team and negotiators were called to the scene.

“The negotiators worked to achieve Carter’s peaceful surrender, but he refused to obey,” police said. “SWAT officials used chemicals to encourage Carter’s surrender, but he continued to resist the efforts of the officers.”

A few hours later, around 11:00 pm, Carter stopped communicating with the officer.

“Believing that Carter might have needed medical assistance, SWAT officials broke the door and noticed that Carter was unresponsive in the bathroom,” police said.

He was taken to a local hospital and died on Monday.

It is unknown how the man died. Authorities said an autopsy was scheduled for later this week to determine the cause of death.

Police did not have any information about the apparent explosion or trigger of the incident.

No one else was injured during the incident, and no further details were immediately available.
