SANTA ROSA (BCN) - A lengthy standoff in northeast Santa Rosa ended Thursday morning when a man believed to have barricaded himself inside his home was found outside a nearby residence and was arrested, a police sergeant said.
The man was found around 10:15 a.m., Sgt. John Snetsinger said.
"He's in custody and everybody's safe," Snetsinger said.
Officers responded to the man's home at about 11:20 p.m. Wednesday after a woman called to report that her husband had fired shots at her and a locksmith she had hired to help her get back into her home after her husband locked her out, police said.
No one was hit by the gunfire, but the bullets struck a nearby vehicle, police said.
A SWAT team and a hostage negotiating team were sent to the home, located in the 3800 block of Sedgemore Drive near Rincon Ridge Park.
Overnight, negotiators attempted to communicate with the 43-year-old man, police said.
He was finally found this morning in the backyard of a nearby home, and he was taken into custody. His name has not yet been released.
