El Dorado Hills Standoff Suspect Surrenders

EL DORADO HILLS (CBS13) – The man at the center of a standoff in El Dorado Hills has surrendered.

El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the home on Edgehill Drive and Hearst Drive after they received calls that a man with a knife was making threats.

Authorities said that during the course of their negotiations the suspect came out of the home with the knife and even threatened to attack deputies.

SWAT members were called out to the home along with two K-9 officers.

Nearby residents had been urged to stay inside.

At 7:40 a.m., the man came out of the home carrying a phone. He put the phone down, held his hands above his head, and laid face down in the road. Nearby officers cuffed the man and took him into custody.

The man, who appeared to be a black male in is late teens to early 20s, was distraught and is being treated at a nearby hospital.

Neighbors say the man does not live at the home, but was reportedly visiting his girlfriend who apparently lives there.

  • Dirk Diggler

    I didn’t even need to see the street name to know that it was in Serrano, the ghetto of EDH.

  • Kara

    Dirk Diggler. Are you just another hater? I bet you own a gun and a special knife and go around talking in a hateful way about anyone who doesn’t do things your way.

  • Zzzzz

    Not a good way to impress the ladies.

  • theresa

    what a dummy bringing a knife to what he knew would be a gun fight five to one….

  • Accidently Shot In The Face

    Anywhere else like West Sac, San Jose, Oakland, and that fool would have been either shot or badly beat up by the cops, maybe even “accidently” shot in the face.

  • The Rick

    He’s a good person going having trouble dealing with some tough times… be compassionate and helpful rather than judging and hateful

  • Serious Sam

    EDH was much nicer (and not as ugly) before Serrano was built. I lived there for a while about 15 years ago – while a rather boring place to grow up, it was at least a lot less crime ridden.

    this rendition is completely NOT factual. race is wrong, no threat it was a nonlethal negotiation. CHECK YOUR FACTS before “reporting”.

  • LIES! IT'S ALL LIES!!!!!

    I know the leader of one of the swat teams and he was waving a knife around and had a PHONE to his ear…. not a knife to his neck.

  • WOW.

    He is not black…..??? Just because hes not white, you cant just go throwing some randome race out there. That could be considered racist! This whole story is wrong, see how the media stirs things up.

  • Grace saves Face

    he was not waving a knife around ! the whole story is false – i took the call and was with the negotiator – there was never any threat to the police or anyone . God is our witness.
