SWAT Standoff Lasting All Night Ends Peacefully In El Dorado Hills

EL DORADO HILLS (CBS13) – A major road in El Dorado Hills was closed because of a standoff that began Thursday night and lasted into the Friday morning commute.

The incident began at around 8 a.m. at the El Dorado Village Apartments. According to an El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office statement, deputies received a tip that a parolee, 38-year-old Nathan Brown, was living in the El Dorado Hills area and had a sawed-off shotgun.

Deputies went to the apartment off El Dorado Hills Boulevard where they were told Brown was living and saw a man who fit Brown’s description looking out the window. Deputies surrounded the apartment and began communicating with the man. After several hours without hearing from Brown, authorities activated the sheriff’s Crisis Response Unit and SWAT team. The groups came to the apartment and continued to try to make contact with Brown.

After a few hours, crisis negotiators made contact with a female in the apartment who agreed to come out.

About and hour later, Brown surrendered. He was booked into the El Dorado County Jail on charges of violating parole, obstructing law enforcement, and making criminal threats.
