UPDATE: New Details Emerge Surrounding Roseville Shooting Suspect

UPDATE - Saturday, 3:45 p.m.:

A parolee who shot an officer, leading to a nine-hour standoff in Roseville Friday night, has been charged with several counts of attempted murder.

The Roseville Police Department held a news conference Saturday afternoon to offer an update the situation on 32-year-old Sammy Duran.

Police Chief Daniel Hahn said five officers were injured in all including an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent.

Chief Hahn said Duran had been wanted for 10 days by law enforcement, and officers just happened to spot him Friday afternoon in a Roseville neighborhood in the 600 block of Windsor Street.

That's when the ICE agent was shot.

Chief Hahn said more than 100 officers were involved in the standoff and that Duran was "intent on getting away and even murdering any officer that stood in his way."

Duran suffered a gunshot wound to his hand and several bruises to his face.

A new booking photo of suspect Samuel "Sammy" Nathan Duran was also released, where his facial injuries are clearly visible.

Shortly after 3 p.m., Friday, a special agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was shot while conducting a joint enforcement action with the Roseville Police Department, according to ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice. 

The officer was injured with a gunshot to the foot.  

A second round of gunshots was heard in the area of Mayfair Drive after 5 p.m., where many law enforcement officers were seen with their weapons drawn.

The Roseville Police Department said one of their officers were wounded by gunshot and the additional officers were injured by shrapnel. 

Sutter Roseville Medical Center was responsible for the treatment of both the ICE officer and the Roseville police officers. One Roseville police officer remains hospitalized in serious, but stable, condition.

Some reports claimed that the ICE officer accidentally discharged his own weapon, but the Roseville Police Department says that is not true. He did not injure himself.

Police were able to pin Duran inside a home in a neighborhood at Sixth Street and Hampton Drive, where a standoff ensued until he surrendered.

Several schools in the area were locked down during the standoff.

Relatives were urging Duran to surrender during the standoff, and residents in the area were told to stay inside and lock doors and windows.

Duran was taken into custody in the early hours of Saturday morning, according to Roseville Police.

Duran surrendered at about 12:30 a.m., after SWAT sent in a robot to establish communication and ordered the suspect to surrender at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning, according to City of Roseville spokesman Brian Jacobson. The suspect came out from house unarmed, and was taken into custody.

Duran was taken from the scene in an ambulance, was treated at a local hospital and has now been booked into the Placer County Jail, officials said.

Kitty O’Neal spoke with Bobbi, a Roseville resident trapped in their home two houses down from where Duran is holed up.
