ROSEVILLE, Calif. Police say a wanted California parolee fired first in a shootout that left six officers injured and led to an hours-long standoff in a suburban Sacramento city before he surrendered.
A Roseville police spokesman says one officer with a jaw wound and a federal agent shot in the leg remain hospitalized in serious condition. Four other Roseville officers injured by shrapnel were treated and released.
The 32-year-old suspect in the violent confrontation is a validated gang member with a criminal record that includes assault and carjacking.
Samuel Nathan Duran was taken to the Placer County jail Saturday after being treated for scrapes and cuts after surrendering just after midnight.
Duran is being held on a parole violation, but Roseville Police Chief Daniel Hahn says he expects multiple charges of attempted murder would be added.
Duran's aunt tells the Sacramento Bee the family did not believe he fired the shots that struck the federal agent and that the police response to the incident was excessive.
