cop shooting

A parolee suspected of shooting an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and a police officer Friday near Sacramento was taken into custody Saturday morning after a nine-hour standoff.

Authorities identified the man as Sammy Duran. 

The agent, who was not identified, was shot about 3 p.m. while working with investigators from the Roseville Police Department to apprehend Duran, according to ICE.

Once officers made contact with Duran, 32, shots were fired. The ICE agent was shot in the leg, said Brian Jacobson, a spokesman for the city of Roseville.

Duran, armed with an “assault-type rifle,” fled and again shot at authorities, said Lt. Cal Walstadt of the Roseville Police Department.

One Roseville police officer was shot. Two other officers were injured by shrapnel.

All were taken to hospitals; the officer who was shot is in serious condition, Jacobson said.

The ICE agent was in stable condition, the agency said.
