” Police say a gunman suspected of wounding a federal immigration officer and three local police officers has surrendered after an hours-long standoff in a Sacramento suburb.

Authorities say 32-year-old Samuel Nathan Duran would be booked in Roseville’s jail, then taken to Placer County jail. He surrendered at 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The shootings happened Friday afternoon before the standoff occurred.”

” A manhunt continued for well over an hour and Duran was spotted hiding under a table in a park. He fled and officers narrowed in on him. They managed to corner him in a home, one of many that had just been evacuated, and he began to barricade himself inside. A tighter perimeter was put around the small group of homes because they were not initially sure which home he might have gone in.

As SWAT officers approached a home, shots rang out from inside the home striking two of the SWAT officers, one in the face and the other in the shoulder. A third was struck in the face and upper body with a round that fragmented on something before striking him.  Somehow, somewhere, while running from the cops, Duran managed to score a rifle, which is what he shot the SWAT officers with. The injured SWAT guys were quickly extracted and taken to the local trauma center, while the perimeter was tightened around the home they now knew he was in.”
