INTERNATIONAL: Suspect in Northern Calif standoff surrenders
ROSEVILLE, Calif (AP):
The gunman in a violent confrontation that wounded a federal immigration officer and three local police officers surrendered early today after an hours-long standoff in a Sacramento suburb, authorities said.
The suspect, 32-year-old Samuel Nathan Duran, would be booked in Roseville's jail and then taken to Placer County jail, according to city officials. He surrendered at 12:30 a.m. today.
The shootings happened Friday before the standoff occurred.
The federal immigration officer was shot in the leg as he and other officers made initial contact at about 3 p.m. with Duran, a wanted parolee, Roseville police Lt Cal Walstad said.
During a later exchange of gunfire, after Duran fled, two Roseville police officers were hit by gunshots - one in the jaw and the other in the shoulder - and a third officer sustained shrapnel wounds from rounds that hit near them, Walstad said.
Two of the officers were listed in stable condition at Sutter Roseville Medical Center, and a third was in serious condition.
As officers attempted to capture the suspect before his surrender, helicopters were circling overhead and armored vehicles and other police cars flocked to the area last night. Roseville is about 20 miles northeast of the state capital.
In anticipation of the standoff lasting through the night, some local residents were bused to a community center to spend the night.
