Sammy Duran, a parollee who has been wanted by police for about a week, is in a house in Roseville in Sacramento, California on Friday night after shooting one ICE agent and three Roseville police officers.

A police spokesman said that Duran is a known gang member and that he was holding hostages at one point but they managed to escape, reported Charlie Kaye of CBS. Duran is 32.

The city of Roseville said that one of the officers shot is in serious condition, while the other two are in stable condition. 

The ICE agent is in stable condition as well. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

Police have Duran surrounded in a house near 6th and Hampton, the city said via Twitter. Duran is thought to have an assault-type weapon.

Daniel Hahn, chief of Roseville Police Department, said that SWAT officers are talking to the suspect.

If the suspect was watching the press conference Hahn gave, Hanh said: “Please come out and surrender so we can finish up this investigation so that we can focus on our officers getting better.”

“I don’t think there’s a tremendous amount of danger to anyone in the neighborhood,” he added.

Riverside Avenue is closed. People near the avenue and Cirby Way have been told to shelter-in-place. The situation has stretched on for about five hours.

The Maidu Community Center at 1550 Maidu Drive has been opened as a shelter for displaced residents, the city said at 7:48 p.m. PDT. Buses are picking up displaced residents at 1600 Vernon St (corner of Vernon & 6th).
