    Flag-Waving Masked Man Shut Down Highway In Apparent War Protest; No Shots Fired

    (AP) A masked gunman who waved an American flag from a highway overpass in Southern California has surrendered to police after forcing a shutdown of the freeway for hours.

    A KNBC-TV helicopter over the scene showed the man giving up to police at midmorning Monday.

    Police Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte said earlier that the man, wearing a ski mask and brown fatigues, had the flag in one hand and the gun in the other when officers arrived on the overpass just after 7:10 a.m.

    Duarte says the man appeared to have an anti-war sentiment.

    Members of a police special weapons and tactics team and a crisis negotiation team used a bullhorn to communicate with the man. After nearly three hours, he put the handgun on the ground.

    The freeway was shut down in both directions. By midmorning, the California Highway Patrol said traffic was backed up at least three miles in each direction.

    Motorists stalled on the freeway got out and chatted or waved at media helicopters.

    Santa Barbara is 90 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
