CARMICHAEL (CBS13) – A standoff between a suspect and officers on Monday ended with the suspect being detained.
Dispatchers received a call at around 6 a.m. that an armed, intoxicated man was inside a Carmichael home on the corner Petty Lane and Robertson Avenue, was threatening family members and wouldn’t leave.
The man, who is over 6 feet tall and burly, repeatedly came in and out of the home wearing tactical gear and was carrying multiple gun clips full of ammunition, but wasn’t carrying any guns, said Sacramento County Sheriff’s Dept. Sgt. Jason Ramos.
“Why he came out with so much ammunition and no firearms is a bit of a mystery,” said Ramos.
At around 9 a.m., officers shot rubber bullets at the suspect, with no effect. A police K-9 was able to finally subdue the man, allowing him to be taken into custody and avoiding a situation that could have ended in gunfire and bloodshed.
“We’ve gone inside the house and found a number of different firearms. There was at least one shotgun that’s loaded, numerous firearms that are loaded,” said Sacramento County Sheriff’s Dept. Sgt. Jason Ramos. “So, who know’s what was going on in this guy’s head?”
Police have not filed charges against the man because, they say, he didn’t violate the law.
