ROSEVILLE, CA – The man responsible for shooting four officers including an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer and three Roseville police officers has surrendered.

The Roseville Police reported around 12:30 a.m. Saturday that 32-year-old Samuel Nathan Duran surrendered to police. Following standard procedures after an incident of this nature, Duran was transported to a local hospital to be evaluated before being booked into Placer County Jail.

According to Roseville police spokesman Cal Walstad, Duran had been at-large for at least 10 days with several law enforcement agencies on the lookout. Once officers located Duran Friday at around 3 p.m., he opened fire on officers, wounding a federal immigration officer, who was on scene providing support for Roseville police.

The initial shooting occurred in the area of Riverside Blvd and Cirby Way, where Duran wounded the ICE officer. However, there are some witnesses that claim the ICE officer may have shot himself in the leg, but that has not been confirmed.

Duran ran from the bike park located on Riverside and broke into a house located in the area of 6th and Hampton Streets, where he barricaded himself inside. At least 10 separate law enforcement agencies converged on the area during the manhunt. It’s unclear who lived at that home.

Negotiators from the Hostage Negotiations Team began talking to Duran via phone and bullhorn on and off during the 9 hour standoff. Duran’s family continued to plead with him to surrender.

There were several times when Duran shot at officers while barricaded in the home, shooting three Roseville police officers. One was hit by bullet fragments, one was shot in the jaw and the other shot in the shoulder.

One of the injured was in serious condition

A robot was sent into the home sometime after 10:30 to communicate instructions to Duran on how to surrender.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Duran came out of the house with his hands held up, where he was placed onto a gurney and loaded into an ambulance.

All the victims were at Sutter Roseville Hospital. The ICE agent, with Homeland Security, was listed as stable and alert after being shot in the leg.

One at-home day care center locked down the center into the night. Area schools also went into lockdown during the initial stages of the incident.
